Strange setup for 7800NXL IP Outgoing Filter

Post by Shintaro » Fri Sep 30, 2016 1:15 am

Hi,

I have setting up the out bound IP filter and it seems strange they that I have to set the IP range and Port range.

Normally I set the following on most firewalls:

Example of blocking SMTP:

Source IP : Any, Any
Source Port: Any

Dest IP: Any, Any
Dest Port: 25

But it seems that the key word "Any", "*", "0.0.0.0" or "*.*.*.*" doesn't work. So I have had to do the following:

Source IP:192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.254
Source Port: 1-65535

Dest IP: 1.1.1.1 - 254.254.254.254
Dest Port: 25

If I don't do that I get "Source IP Address: Invalid".

Firmware: 2.32e
7800 NXL

Am I missing something? I have never had to set a rule like this in a firewall before.

Kind Regards.

Try following the attached screen shots (I have two exmaples there, one without a pre-defined IP range (any) and one with a pre-defined IP range)
