880L Firewall settings for dummies
« 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 ....

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
