“IP Address of DMZ Host
DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) Host is a host without the protection of the firewall. It allows a computer to be exposed to unrestricted 2-way communication for Internet games, video conferencing, Internet telephony and other special applications.
NOTE: This feature should be used only when needed.”
“Some applications require multiple connections, such as Internet games, video conferencing, Internet telephony, etc. Because of the firewall function, these applications cannot work with a pure NAT router. The Special Applications feature allows some of these applications to work with your Barricade. The settings are:
· Trigger: the outbound port number issued by the application.
· Incoming ports: when the trigger packet is detected, inbound packets sent to the specified port numbers are allowed to pass through the firewall.
This product provides some predefined settings. Select your application and click Copy to to add the predefined setting to your list. If the mechanism of Special Applications fails to make an application work, try setting your computer as the DMZ host instead.
NOTE: At any given time, only one PC can use each Special Application.”
Each Special Application = a TCP port(s)
Barricade can also be configured for 20 WWW, FTP and other virtual servers on the LAN to be accessible to Internet users.
The Linksys router (BEFSR41) allows one DMZ host. Linksys Port Forwarding is similar to the Barricade Special Applications function. Larry
