Why can Networked Devices not be used when a VPN connection is active?


With most VPNs, as soon as the VPN connection is established, it will take precedence over all other network connections. Access to the Internet (other than to keep the VPN connection itself alive) will go via the VPN and the corporate network you are connected to, rather than the local ISP. Furthermore, access to the local network is temporarily disabled.

As a result, your local print server may not be accessible,
you cannot use devices via the Network USB hub, or the USB ports on your router (if it has these), you may not even be able to access your local router's configuration page or ping the router or other machines in the local network.

This is done because of security reasons.
When a computer is connected to a corporate network via a VPN, the administrator needs to make sure that that machine can not act as a some form of a gateway enabling other machines in the local network to access that corporate network in any way. For that reason, the machine connecting via the VPN must temporarily be isolated from the local network.

How to block torrent download in sonicwall tz190


BitTorrent is a torrent downloading client used to download
music, video and game files for free.

BitTorrent can really eat up bandwidth, which can be mighty
frustrating, especially if you're sharing a computer and an Internet connection
with someone who's using BitTorrent.

If he's not willing to stop using BitTorrent, there are a
few steps you can take to block this demanding program.



Switch your Internet service to an Internet service provider (ISP) that is
hostile to BitTorrent. RCN, for example, is known to block BitTorrent traffic.

Try blocking all ports from 6881 to 6999 on your system.

You must first add a port before you can block it. Click
"Control Panel" and then "Network and Internet
Connections."

Click "Firewall Settings," and select the
"Exceptions" tab.


Click the "Add Ports" button. Enter the port
number you want to block, and click "OK" to save your changes.

Navigate to the "General" tab in the "Windows
Firewall" section, and remove the check mark from the port you just
created.

That port is now blocked and cannot be used by BitTorrent.


Unfortunately, performing this procedure 118 times is
somewhat time consuming, but it is one of the few ways known to block
BitTorrent.




If someone is using BitTorrent on your computer, don't
allow him access to it.

If he's using BitTorrent on his own computer, you may have
to buy your own machine to avoid conflict.

If the Internet is slow on your computer because
he's downloading via BitTorrent on his own machine, consider using a public
Wi-Fi point such as a library or coffeehouse.

I'm using rogers as my ISP. my rogers modem is connected to symantec gateway security 360 switch which is connected to D-link switch. i am connected to the symantec switch, and have internet connection,...


Hummm
it may be a pretty simple fix.

Connect the modem from rogers to the WAN port not to the switch port of the symantec gateway

connect the DLink switch to a switch port on the switch part of the getway and both of you should be able to get an internal IP

Firewall is blocking incoming emails


Do you have an email server in place? If so, you need to setup port 25 for inbound access to the IP address of the email server. I would suggest that you don't allow all as that will open up everything and kind of negates the reason to have a firewall. Some ISPs block port 25 though and use port 587.

If you don't have an email server then the problem might be with your email client configuration.

Cyberguard SG300


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.
