Logging and Other Features

Log Views

Although most home users may not take advantage of the HS-100W's logging features (Figure 7), I personally would have preferred to see a few more capabilities here like User-Level Web Browsing Reports. But to be fair, I did like the fact that ZxYEL went to the trouble of granting the HS-100W the ability to email log files at scheduled intervals. On screen, the log files are organized and easy to read, and from within the Log Settings tab (Figure 8), you can control a host of configuration options for logging.

To keep tabs on my network, I choose to log Attacks, and have these log files emailed to me weekly. Unfortunately robust traffic logging isn't available, but you can at least log sites that are blocked by the parental controls which might give some insight into the types of information your kids are trying to get their hands on. In addition to this, you will discover support to send logs to a Syslog Daemon which is nice, but I found no way to setup SNMP Traps - I guess we can't always have it all.

The HS-100W actually has many more routing features that allow it to be used in some relatively sophisticated networking setups. These features include:

  • the ability to set static routes and specify dynamic routing protocols (RIP)
  • UPnP support with separate enables for NAT Traversal and UPnP firewall bypass
  • an Any IP feature that allows clients to connect without having to change their IP address settings
  • IP Alias that allows up to three private subnets to be defined
  • DHCP server that allows IP address reservation by MAC address
  • Dynamic DNS client supporting dyndns.org
  • Remote Management via HTTP, command-line via Telnet or SNMP applications
