DMZ
Use this screen to specify the IP address of a default server to receive packets from ports not specified in the Port Triggering screen. The DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone) is a network between the WAN and the LAN that is accessible to devices on both the WAN and LAN with firewall protection. Devices on the WAN can initiate connections to devices on the DMZ but not to those on the LAN.
You can put public servers, such as email, web, and FTP servers, on the DMZ to provide services on both the WAN and LAN. To use this feature, you first need to assign a DMZ host. Click Network Setting > NAT > DMZ to open the DMZ screen.
*Use an IPv4 address for the DMZ server.
*Enter the IP address of the default server in the Default Server Address field, and click Apply to activate the DMZ host. Otherwise, clear the IP address in the Default Server Address field, and click Apply to deactivate the DMZ host.
