Online Firewall  

Firewall

NOTE: The firewall is only available for DHCP and Static accounts. trueSTREAM users will need to contact technical support to enable port 25 bypass.

Click on Manage your Firewall


The Firewall has three settings:

No Firewall - No firewalling, port filtering or traffic blocking is performed.

Basic Firewall - The Basic Firewall blocks all uninitiated incoming traffic from your network and prevents any inbound TCP connections from being established on common ports. These ports include (135, 139, 389, 445 and 593). DSL Extreme recommends the Medium Firewall as it helps protect your computer from the most common Internet threats that are transferred through common ports.

Full Firewall - The Full Firewall blocks all uninitiated incoming traffic from your network and prevents any inbound TCP connections from being established. This filter allows the highest level of protection and is appropriate for users that primarily browse the Internet and send email.

Choose the level of security that best suits you by clicking on the circular button. Changes may take a few minutes to take effect.
