Firewall - Advanced
Manage these settings at: Menu ▸ Tools ▸ Firewall ▸ Settings ▸ Advanced
You can specify a limit on the number of entries kept in firewall logs to save disk space.
- Enable automatic port scan detection means that the firewall detects port scan attempts. This is a common technique among hackers used to identify devices on a network. If a port scan is detected, the offending IP address is blacklisted and all communication with that IP is blocked.
- Enable raw sockets - Many common applications use raw sockets instead of specific communication protocols. Unchecking this option slightly increases security but creates significant connectivity issues with applications using raw sockets.
