Create your Norton Core guest network
Norton Core lets you create a separate wireless network for your guests.
Devices connected to the guest network cannot access devices on your private network. In
addition, a device in your guest network cannot communicate with another device in that
network. You can add up to 254 devices to your guest network.
To share your guest network, just give your guests the guest network name (SSID) and
password.
Create a guest network
1
Launch the Norton Core app.
2
On the top-left corner, tap the menu icon.
3
Tap Settings > Guest Network.
4
In the Guest Network screen, tap Enable.
5
Update the network name and password for your guest network.
Norton Core automatically generates the guest network name and password. It adds
_Guest to the end of your current protected network name.
6
If you want Norton Core to notify you each time a user joins your guest network, enable
Allow or block devices attempting to join the guest network.
7
Tap Time Remaining and select the duration of your guest network.
Your options are:
■
24 Hours
■
7 Days
■
30 Days
■

On the top-right corner, tap Save.

To share your guest network name and password using text message or email, tap Share
Guest Network.
Enable or disable Norton Core UPnP
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is a network protocol that lets devices on your network
automatically set up port forwarding rules for the connections that they need. This allows a
UPnP-compatible device to communicate directly with other UPnP devices on the same
network.
By default, Norton Core does not allow UPnP devices to make themselves discoverable on
the network and blocks all incoming requests. This is because UPnP compatible devices are
prone to malicious attack due to security vulnerabilities in the UPnP protocol. In the Norton
Core app, you have to manually turn on UPnP. Each time a UPnP compatible device receives
an incoming request, Norton Core alerts you so that you can allow or block the incoming
request.
Note: Turning on UPnP affects your network security score. To improve your security score,
Norton Core may suggest that you turn off UPnP. You can set up port forwards manually in
that case.
Enable UPnP settings
1
Launch the Norton Core app.
2
On the top-left corner, tap the menu icon.
3
Tap Settings > Network > UPnP.
4
In the UPnP screen, slide the Enable UPnP switch to on.
5
If you do not want Norton Core to notify you of incoming connection requests, slide the
Automatically approve UPnP requests switch to on.
All UPnP-enabled devices in your network start getting listed under UPnP Devices.
Add or update Norton Core port forwarding settings
By default, Norton Core prevents malicious programs and hackers from accessing your secure
network. With the port forwarding feature, you can route network traffic from outside your
network to access a specific device in your secure network and vice versa.
35
Customize your Norton Core settings
Add or update Norton Core port forwarding settings
Once you specify the port numbers, Norton Core router forwards the network traffic on the
specific port to a specific device. Norton Core blocks the inactive ports on the device thereby
providing protection against attacks through hacking techniques such as port scanning.
If you had already set up port forwarding for some devices on your network, they are
automatically listed in the Norton Core Port Forwarding screen and are discoverable by other
UPnP compatible devices. For each listed device, you can view the port range and protocol
used.
Add port forwarding for specific devices
1
Launch the Norton Core app.
2
On the top-left corner, tap the menu icon.
3
Tap Settings > Network > Port Forwarding.
4
In the Port Forwarding screen, tap Add.

■
External Port: Provide a port number.
Under Protocol, select one of the following:
■
TCP: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) establishes connections between devices
before it sends any data and verifies that data is properly received.
■
UDP: User Datagram Protocol (UDP) does not establish a connection before sending
data and it does not verify that the data is properly received. UDP is commonly used
for streaming media.
■
TCP/UDP: Select this option if you want to route the traffic using both TCP and UDP.
On the top-right corner, tap Add.

Change Norton Core DNS settings
Norton Core uses the Norton Domain Name System (DNS) service to provide content filtering
policies. These policies block unsafe, fraudulent, phishing, and infected websites from entering
your protected network.
Norton Core DNS supports DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) protocols that add a layer of
security to protect the DNS from data modification attacks.
You can change your DNS settings to use your ISP's DNS servers or a third party DNS services
such as Google DNS or Neustar Advantage DNS*.
Note: Any change to the DNS settings will automatically restart the Norton Core router. You
may not have internet connectivity for up to one minute.
Change your DNS settings

your DNS servers and performs all DNS lookups using Google Public DNS.
37
Customize your Norton Core settings
Set the Norton Core light brightness and understand light states
If you choose Neustar Advantage DNS, Norton Core uses the IP addresses 156.154.70.1

DNS.
5
On the top-right corner, tap Save.

Norton Core software and firmware updates
Norton Core automatically downloads the latest software and firmware updates regularly from
Symantec servers. The updates safeguard your secure wireless network from the latest viruses
and unknown security risks. Norton Core uses the LiveUpdate technology to obtain and install
these updates.
When LiveUpdate runs, it checks if your Norton product is up-to-date with the protection
updates. If the product does not have the latest updates, LiveUpdate downloads the necessary
protection updates for your device and processes the updates. Your Norton Core router should
be connected to the internet to obtain these updates.

You can reset Norton Core from the app or from the router. A factory reset typically does the
following:
■
Disables your current wireless network
■
Erases all your current settings and restores default settings
■
