Title: 880L Firewall settings for dummies
Post by: JWillis on January 06, 2016, 04:20:57 PM
I'm not a technical person.   Can access the settings,  but am fairly clueless as to what many of them mean.   I notice that under firewall settings, every option is disabled.   Can someone suggest what should be activated for basic protection?   

Appreciate,  in advance,  any guidance and assistance ....

Disabled
Enable SPI IPv4:    
Disabled
Enable Anti-spoof Checking:    
Disabled

DMZ: Leave disabled.
SPI: Enable. This is basic firewall.
Anti-Spoof Checking: Enable if you want, but not as important.
IPv6 Simple: Enable if using IPv6. ::Edit:: Some ISP using certain IPv6 break when using this. If IPv6 doesn't work, try disabling this.
IPv6 Ingress Filtering; Enable if using IPv6
