DMZ Host Configuration on RV215W
A DMZ is a physical or a logical network which provides security to the LAN available in the organization. This is an internal network which is made available to an untrusted network. This service is configured for the DMZ in the firewall rules to re-direct the packets from the WAN port IP address to a particular LAN server or client. DMZ Host is mainly used to improve security in the internal network of the organization.
The DMZ Host acts like a management server when it is placed on the network that contains multiple network interfaces, and performs the above roles to protect the LAN. Port Forwarding does not need to be configured for each service if a DMZ Host is configured.
This article explains how to configure the DMZ Host on the RV215W.
DMZ Host Configuration
Step 1. Log in to the web configuration utility and choose Networking > LAN > DMZ Host. The DMZ Host page opens:
Step 2. Check the Enable check box to enable the DMZ Host feature. The DMZ Host is a server in the organization that is made available to provide services to clients on an untrusted network.
Step 3. Enter the IP address of the LAN which is configured to receive packets via the DMZ in the Host IP Address field.
Note: The LAN DMZ host requires a fixed or static IP address for the DMZ host feature to work properly.
