Port Filtering insulates your local computers from many TCP/IP security attacks, including internal attacks by malicious users. Enable Port Filtering Port Range: - Protocol: Both TCP UDP Comment: Current Filter Table Port Range Protocol Comment Select Helpful Tips: Port Filtering is a security measure that prevents users from using specific ports for reasons other than what those ports were originally intended for. For example, TCP port 21 is traditionally used for FTP. However, there is nothing stopping a user from using port 21 for purposes other than FTP access. By enabling Port Filtering on TCP port 21, only FTP communications would be allowed. No other types of communication would be allowed on this port. Hackers may sometimes scan for all open ports on your network as a method of hacking into your network. Port Filtering and other firewall features help to prevent this from happening. To set up Port Filtering, select a range of ports you wish to filter. If you are trying to filter a single port, enter the port number twice. © 2011 Amped Wireless /Newo Corporation.
