Advanced Settings

The next group contains more settings than any other. These settings are related to the functionality most users buy routers for. I mean thorough processing of data traffic.

This group begins with the Virtual Servers page. Here you can specify up to 24 rules for machines on the internal network to run servers of different applications accessible from the external network.

The Port Forwarding page offers 24 rules for specifying ports so that different applications could work in the external network. Ports can be specified in groups, separately, or both. The list of predefined applications is extensive, from popular multiplayer games to peer-to-peer networks. I guess most users are likely to find the applications they need in that list.

You can edit up to 24 rules for port triggering on the Application Rules page. This means dynamic conversion of some ports when they are accessed from the local network.

The QoS page contains options related to the integrated QoS engine including 10 editable rules for traffic prioritization.

The Network Filter page allows to create up to 24 rules for filtering access to the internal network by MAC addresses.

The Access Control page is where you assign rights to use network resources. Particularly, you can restrict access to certain websites or prohibit certain applications (e.g. peer-to-peer networks) to run in the internal network.

The Website Filter page is in fact a list you can use to limit the Internet access for users of the local network. If the appropriate option is activated on the previous page, only the websites from this list will be accessible.
