Apply Filters to Ports

Instead of apply presets to ports you can also apply filters to ports.

If a filter is set to allow, all other network packets not matching this filter, will be blocked.

Requirement: Connection to the Web Interface.

1. Click Edit Presets.

2. Scroll down to the end of the page and click in the bottom right corner Extended filter and preset config.

Figure 1: Access Extended Mode

   The extended mode opens.

Figure 2: Extended Mode

To change the filter status from blocked to allow or vice versa, change the preset status.
If allow is selected, all network packets matching the filter port will be forwarded. If a protocol needs more than one port, you have to apply multiple filters.

3. To change the status of the filter (allowed= displayed by a green color) (blocked= displayed by a red color), click the preset number or preset name in the header.

Figure 3: Filters Applied

4. Select the filters for the port by clicking. If a preset was assigned to the port, the preset changes to filters applied.

5. Click Apply settings and stay where you are or Apply settings and leave edit.

The selected filters are applied and saved in the startup configuration. A filter icon is visible right beside the group name on the front display.

To create new filter, see Create New Filter.
