Firewall and Filtering

The 614 has a NAT-based firewall, with features, again, similar to those of the the FVS318. I'll just run down the differences here - check the spec table to your right, or the [FVS318 review] if you want all the details:

  • You can statically forward up to 20 (vs. 10 on the 318) ports or port ranges (no protocol selection), picking from a list of common services, or defining your own service
  • Forwarded server "loopback" is not supported
  • The Block Sites feature supports both websites and newsgroups, and can have 255, 32 character entries.

Note that like the FVS318, there are no port filters, so you can't block, say, the ports needed for certain games or file-sharing services.

NOTE! Update 10/1/02 - Port filtering added in 4.10 Sep 13 2002 firmware.
