Advanced - DMZ Host Home > Advanced > DMZ Host Most messages received by the SBG6580 from the Internet are a result of a request that originated with a device on the home network. If a message is received from the Internet that was not expected, it is typically rejected. This is done to protect the devices on the home network from outside attacks. To bypass the protection, either specific ports can be forwarded to a device in the home (see port forwarding), or a single device can be designated to receive all unsolicited messages from the Internet. This is known as "putting a device in the DMZ." Putting a device in the DMZ removes protection normally provided by the SBG6580, leaving it open to attacks. DMZ Host DMZ Host 192.168.0.
