Router security question



Hi peeps,

I have set up my router to host DF Task Force Delta. It is a D-link DI-713P, and has a 'virtual server'. I set the port forwarding etc and it works perfectly.

Now, my question is, does this bypass the built in firewall, and do I need to get a s/w one, or am I ok as is?

Thanks in advance.....

GraLk :happy:


Your firewall will still work for most ports but the ports you opened for this server to work are possibly viewable/pingable/vunerable. As long as you didn't put the whole system in the DMZ, or opened all ports to that system you'll be fairly safe, because the server program should mask the ports it uses unless sent the correct codes to show the ports.
If you did then you'll need to get a Software Firewall for that system (Only if your worried about that system).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
