Question about D-Link NetDefend DFL-200 Firewall

All Public IPs

Hi guys, Currently, I?m using OfficeInternet Firewall (3Com) and want to switch to DFL-200. I have a problem configuring DFL since I want to keep all my LAN ip addresses public (as a matter of fact I want to use DFL-200 as firewall not as a router). Mail server and DNS server are on DMZ. FTP server too. One DNS server is inside the firewall (LAN port) and I have a plan to add mirror WEB and backup mail server somewhere (DMZ or LAN not sure yet). But this as this moment is not important. Any suggestions is more than welcome Thanks

Re: All Public IPs

In order to use your DFL-200 as a firewall, and not a router, you will need to put it into "transparent mode." This will allow you to use only public IP addresses and you will not be using NAT.

Unable to map server to storage media over the internet for back

Virtual Private Network (VPN) endpoint and pass-through support. Additional firewall features include custom and policy-based filtering options. These options have to be configured properly.
Check your configuration level and access policy.
If its a public server you have to place it in DMZ.
Check IP settings of the server. U may require a VPN tunnel

Url blocking on dfl-200

Hi Mohan143,
Zupertails here,

you probably overlooked one small thing.
In order to actually activate the blacklist, you need to add a rule in The Firwall, LAN->Wan filter.

1) Just add a new filter, name it what you want.
2) In 'Action' select 'Allow'
3) In 'Service' select 'http-outbound'
4) Click The green Apply icon
5) Click the Yellow Apply button right
6) Click 'Activate changes'
7) Wait a couple of seconds and click on the activation link
