Firewall VPN Router Overview
The Firewall VPN Router provides three 10/100Mbit Ethernet network interface ports which are the Internal/LAN, External/WAN, and DMZ port. It also provides an easily operated software WebUI that allows users to set system parameters or monitor network activities using a web browser.
Firewall VPN Router security feature
Some functions that are available in the firewall are: Packet Filter, Proxy Server, Hacker invasion alarm, Packet monitor log, Policy, etc.
Firewall VPN Router installation
This product is a hardware firewall. Therefore the installation is much easier than a software firewall. First the user has to prepare three network cables, and connect them to the internal, external and DMZ connectors respectively. The internal interface has to connect to the office’s internal network on the same HUB/Switch. The external interface has to connect with an external router, DSL modem, or Cable modem. The DMZ interface connects to an independent HUB/Switch for the DMZ network.
Firewall VPN Router function setting
The Firewall VPN Router has a built in WEBUI (Web User Interface). All configurations and management are done through the WEBUI using an Internet web browser.
Firewall VPN Router monitoring function
The firewall provides monitoring functions which contains traffic log, event log, traffic alarm, event alarm, and traffic statistics. Traffic alarm records the packets of hacker invasions. Not only does the firewall log these attacks, it can be set up to send

WebUI Configuration example
Connect both the Administrator’s PC and the Internal (LAN) port of the Firewall VPN Router Firewall to a hub or switch. Make sure there is a link light on the hub/switch for both connections. The Firewall VPN Router has an embedded web server used for management and configuration. Use a web browser to display the configurations of the firewall (such as Internet Explorer 4(or above) or Netscape 4.0(or above) with full java script support). The default IP address of the firewall is 192.168.1.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Therefore, the IP address of the Administrator PC must be in the range between 192.168.1.2 /24– 192.168.1.254/24.
If the company’s internal IP Address is not subnet of 192.168.1.0, (i.e. Internal IP Address is 172.16.0.1) the Administrator must change his/her PC IP address to be within the same range of the internal subnet (i.e. 192.168.0.0). Reboot the PC if necessary.
By default, the Firewall VPN Router is shipped with its DHCP Server function enabled. This means the client computers on the internal (LAN) network including the Administrator PC can set their TCP/IP settings to automatically obtain an IP address from the Firewall VPN Router.
The following table is a list of private IP addresses. These addresses may not be used as an External IP address.
10.0.0.0 ~ 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 ~ 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 ~ 192.168.255.255

Once the Administrator PC has an IP address on the same network as the Firewall VPN Router, open up an Internet web browser and type in http://126.96.36.199 in the address bar.

The configuration is successful if you see the screen below. Make sure that all the computers that are connected to the Internal (LAN) port have their Default Gateway IP Address set to the Firewall’s Internal IP Address (i.e. 192.168.1.1). At this point, all the computers on the Internal network should gain access to Internet immediately. If a firewall filter function is required, please refer to the Policy section.
