WAN Services card

The WAN Services card displays:

  • the DMZ status
  • the number of port forwarding rule that are defined. Port forwarding allows you to forward incoming internet traffic arriving on a specific port to a local device
  • the number of UPnP rules that are active. UPnP-enabled games and applications automatically create port the necessary forwarding rules to run services on that device

Viewing additional settings

Select WAN services. The WAN Services page appears and allows you to:

  • view or change the port forwarding rules
  • view the active UPnP rules

In the upper-right corner, you can click show advanced to:

  • configure a DMZ host
  • enable or disable UPnP services
  • configure Dynamic DNS

The dynamic DNS service allows you to assign a fixed DNS host name (for example mywebpage.dyndns.org) to a broadband connection even if it is using a dynamic IP address. As soon as the device gets a new IP address, the dynamic DNS server updates its entry to match the fixed DNS host name the new IP address.
