Virtual DMZ exposes one client to the Internet, allowing this
client to receive all inbound packets directed to your Local Area
Inbound trac from the Internet is usually discarded and routed
to a specic client only if port forwarding or a port trigger has
been congured on the network. In a DMZ conguration, one
network client receives all inbound packets.
Setting up DMZ on a network is useful when you need incoming
ports open or you want to host a domain, web, or e-mail server.
CAUTION: Opening all the ports on a client to the Internet makes the
network vulnerable to outside attacks. Please be aware of the security
risks involved in using DMZ.
To set up DMZ:
1. From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings > WAN >
2. Congure the setting below. When done, click Apply.
• IP address of Exposed Station: Key in the client’s LAN IP
address that will provide the DMZ service and be exposed
on the Internet. Ensure that the server client has a static IP
To remove DMZ:
1. Delete the client’s LAN IP address from the IP Address of
Exposed Station text box.
2. When done, click Apply.
