[WAN] DMZ introduction and set up
What is DMZ?
Virtual DMZ allows you to expose one computer to the Internet, so that all the inbounds packets will be redirected to the computer you set. It is useful while you run some applications that use uncertained incoming ports. Please use it carefully.
Special Applications: Some applications require special handler against NAT. These special handlers are disabled in default.
Note: Opening all the ports on a PC to the Internet makes the network vulnerable to outside attacks. Please be aware of the security risks involved in using DMZ.
