Create New Filter

You can create 85 new filters, additional to the 43 predefined filters.

Important:
The combination of filter name, data type and addressing must be unique for each filter. If this data are not unique, it is not possible to create a new filter.

Open Edit Filters pop-up

Requirement: Connection to the Web Interface.

  1. Click Edit Presets.
  2. Click at the bottom right corner Extended filter and preset config.
  3. Click at the bottom right corner Custom filters.

Create Ethernet Filter

To create an Ethernet filter:

  1. Open the Edit Filters pop-up.
  2. Enter the Filter name.
    Each filter name must be unique. The filter name contain letters, numbers, and hyphens (-).
  3. Select the Data type Ethernet.
  4. Select in the drop down if the Addressing is
    - Any
    - Unicast
    - Multicast
    - Broadcast
  5. Enter the Ethertype.
    Valid Ethertypes are
    - 0x600 - 0x7ff
    - 0x801 - 0x805
    - 0x807 - 0x86dc
    - 0x86de - 0xfff
  6. Click Create filter.

The Ethernet filter is created and visible the end of the filter tables. The filter is saved in the startup configuration.


Create IPv4 UDP Filter or IPv4 TCP Filter

Information:
The mask is used to determine the range of the IP destination.
Example 1:
IP destination: 192.168.1.129
IPv4 mask: 255.255.255.255
All packets send to IP address 192.168.1.129 match the filter.
Example 2:
IP destination: 192.168.1.129
IPv4 mask: 255.255.255.0
All packets send to IP address 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255 match the filter.

To create an IPv4 UDP filter or IPv4 TCP filter:

  1. Open the Edit Filters pop-up.
  2. Enter the Filter name.
    Each filter name must be unique. The filter name contain letters, numbers, and hyphens (-).
  3. Select the Data type. IPv4 UDP or IPv4 TCP.
  4. Select in the drop down if the Addressing is
    - Any
    - Unicast
    - Multicast
    - Broadcast
  5. Select the DPort type (= destination port type). Choose between Single Port or Port Range.
  6. Enter the DPort (= destination port number). Valid port numbers are between 0 - 65535.
  7. Enter the IPv4 destination.
  8. Enter the IPv4 mask.
  9. Click Create filter.

The IPv4 UDP or TCP filter is created and visible the end of the filter tables. The filter is saved in the startup configuration.


Create IPv6 UDP Filter or IPv6 TCP Filter

To create an IPv6 UDP filter or IPv6 TCP filter:

  1. Open the Edit Filters pop-up.
  2. Enter the Filter name.
    Each filter name must be unique. The filter name contain letters, numbers, and hyphens (-).
  3. Select the Data type. IPv6 UDP or IPv6 TCP.
  4. Select in the drop down if the Addressing is
    - Any
    - Unicast
    - Multicast
    - Broadcast
  5. Select the DPort type (= destination port type). Choose between Single Port or Port Range.
  6. Enter the DPort (= destination port number). Valid port numbers are between 0 - 65535.
  7. Click Create filter.

The IPv6 UDP or TCP filter is created and visible the end of the filter tables. The filter is saved in the startup configuration.


Create ARP Filter

To create an ARP filter:

  1. Open the Edit Filters pop-up.
  2. Enter the Filter name.
    Each filter name must be unique. The filter name contain letters, numbers, and hyphens (-).
  3. Select the Data type ARP.
