Question about HotBrick SoHo 401 Firewall

1 Answer

DMZ setup My owners manual says that this device has a DMZ, it also indicates it in the diagrams. However the back of my unit only marks 4 ports for LAN and 1 for WAN. According to the diagrams I am to use the LAN port closest to the WAN port. The software in the unit also indicates that I have a DMZ I cannot get the servers in the DMZ to reach the WAN nor the LAN, I can't get the WAN to see the servers in the DMZ. All the servers have public IP addresses. I've tried to create firewall rules but either they do not work or I'll get a responce that the table is full (there are no other rules). Where am I going wrong? Thanks Lou

Is there a setting in the software to select the IP address for the DMZ? I'm not sure about the firewall, but most routers need you to configure the software to actually show which IP on your network is allowed DMZ.

WHAT LIGHTS ON LINKSYS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BLINKING


Note that incoming traffic will cause the WAN (or Internet) light to blink even if it is 'probe' traffic trying to break in to your network. Such traffic is to be expected and is the reason you have firewall functionality in your gateway router.

On the inside, there is a bit of traffic on any LAN when the computers are turned on. Messages generated by the router itself are used to find computers and printers for a lot of different legitimate reasons.

No wireless connection for laptop. Linksys router - model #wrt160n v2


you can run a direct line to that router and go to the cisco web site and get the information you need to run that router. its a pdf format and is 2.56 Meg. Try this

SecureEasySetup (Orange/White) The Cisco logo is the Router's SecureEasySetup button. It

lights up and will stay orange when the Router is powered on. The color orange indicates that

the Router is not using the SecureEasySetup feature, while the color white indicates that the

Router is using the SecureEasySetup feature. When the Router enters SecureEasySetup

mode, the Cisco logo will turn white and start flashing. After the Router has generated

the SSID and WPA Personal key, the Cisco logo will stop flashing and stay white.

To clear the SSID and WPA Personal key, press and hold down the Cisco logo for five seconds.

The Cisco logo will flash slowly as the Router resets itself. The Cisco logo will turn orange to

indicate a successful reset.NOTE: SecureEasySetup is a feature that makes

it easy to set up your wireless network. If you have SecureEasySetup devices, run the Router's

Setup Wizard CD-ROM and follow the onscreen instructions to use SecureEasySetup.

Power (Green) The Power LED lights up and will stay on while the Router is powered

on. When the Router goes through its selfdiagnostic mode during every boot-up, this

LED will flash. When the diagnostic is complete, the LED will be solidly lit.

DMZ (Green) The DMZ LED indicates when the DMZ function is being used. This LED will

remain lit as long as DMZ is enabled. WLAN (Green) The WLAN LED lights up when

the wireless feature is enabled. If the LED is flashing, the Router is actively sending or

receiving data over the network. 1, 2, 3, 4 (Green) These numbered LEDs, corresponding with the numbered ports on the Router's back panel, serve two purposes. If the LED is continuously lit, the Router is successfully connected to a device through that port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over that port.

Internet (Green) The Internet LED lights up when there is a connection made through the

Internet port. A flashing LED indicates network activity over the Internet port.

Good luck

Nat help


Hi jman92592,


Here are some options with that router. Some online games and videoconferencing applications are incompatible with NAT. The WGR614 router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work properly with them, but there are other applications that may not function well. In some cases, one local PC can run the application properly if that PC’s IP address is entered as the default in the PORTS Menu. If one local PC acts as a game or videoconferencing host, enter its IP address as the default


To set up an additional computer to play games like Half Life, KALI or Quake III:
1.Click the button of an unused port in the table.
2.Select the game again from the Service Name list.
3.Change the beginning port number in the Start Port box. For these games, use the supplied number in the default listing and add +1 for each additional computer. For example, if you've already configured one computer to play Hexen II (using port 26900), the second computer's port number would be 26901, and the third computer would be 26902.
4.Type the same port number in the End Port box that you typed in the Start Port box.
5.Type the IP address of the additional computer in the Server IP Address box.
6.Click Apply



The WAN Setup options let you configure a DMZ server, change the MTU size and enable the router to respond to a Ping on the WAN port.

Connect Automatically, as Required

  • Normally, this option should be Enabled, so that an Internet connection will be made automatically, whenever Internet-bound traffic is detected. In locations where Internet access is billed by the minute, if this causes high connection costs, you can disable this setting.
  • If disabled, you must connect manually, using the sub-screen accessed from the Router Status menu "Show WAN Status" screen.

•Disable SPI Firewall

  • Normally, this option should be Enabled, so that your local network will be protected by the Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall included in the WGR614. However, certain communications functions like VPN may require turning off the SPI feature.
Setting Up a Default DMZ Server

  • The default DMZ server feature is helpful when using some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. The router is programmed to recognize some of these applications and to work properly with them, but there are other applications that may not function well. In some cases, one local PC can run the application properly if that PC’s IP address is entered as the default DMZ server.
Note: DMZ servers pose a security risk. A computer designated as the default DMZ server loses much of the protection of the firewall, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, the DMZ server can be used to attack your network.

The WAN Setup menu, shown below lets you configure a Default DMZ Server.

  • To assign a computer or server to be a Default DMZ server, follow these steps:
1.Click WAN Setup link on the Advanced section of the main menu.
2.Type the IP address for that server. To remove the default DMZ server, replace the IP address numbers with all zeros.
3.Click Apply.

Good Luck and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks Mark

From the main configuration screen select Network Setup, and then click on the Connections Tab. In the tabline below that click on Aliases.

At this point you input the Alias IP address and the netmask and add it, selecting port 25. The firewall now knows that it is to forward all traffic on port 25 to the computer that has the IP address you put in.

You should be aware that doing the above opens a direct access point into your network! Port 25 is the port used for SMTP (Sendmail) and it is the most vulnerable and most hacked service on the Internet! You should seriously consider not doing this.

A better option would be to goto the DMZ tab and configure a DMZ net on your firewall - you will need to obtain a second routable IP address from your ISP to do this though. By creating the DMZ and then routing port 25 to a machine inside the DMZ you isolate the machine running SMTP from all of the other machines inside your protected network and so make a compromise much less likely.

All of the systems inside your protected network will still have demand access to the machine in our DMZ, but the machine in your DMZ would be unable to initialize access to the protected network, which is a much safer setup.

How To Make a DMZ


A router normally stops incoming Internet traffic from getting on your network, unless the traffic is in response to one of your computers or when using port forwarding. But instead of discarding the incoming traffic or using port forwarding, you can send incoming traffic to one computer on your network by establishing a "Default DMZ Server". (DMZ = humorous reference to "Demilitarized Zone".) This avoids you having to figure out what ports an Internet application wants ? by throwing all ports open for that computer. For regular network operation, NETGEAR recommends you do not use a DMZ. A computer with DMZ loses firewall protection, and is exposed to exploits from the Internet. If compromised, your own computer can attack the rest your network. Instead of DMZ, use port forwarding, as described in How is Port Forwarding Configured? However, the DMZ server feature is helpful: * When you have a problem connecting to an Internet service. Setting up a DMZ will determine whether a closed port is responsible for the problem. * With some online games and videoconferencing applications that are incompatible with NAT. Follow the procedure under your router model to create a DMZ To Create a DMZ for RP614, MR814, FVS318, FVM318, WGR614 1.
