The Internet-Box DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) function is used to forward all incoming Internet connections from outside the home network to a specific device. This is mainly required if you wish to use an additional firewall in your home network and all computers are connected to this firewall. This function is only recommended for network experts. Read on to find out how to activate this service and what you need to bear in mind.
The Internet-Box offers personal expert settings for network and IP addresses. To make changes to these settings, enter “http://internetbox” or “192.168.1.1” in your browser and log in with your Internet-Box “admin” password and activate expert mode. You can set up the function on your home network by choosing “Select device” under Network -> Settings -> DMZ. The devices in question need to be configured correctly to use the DMZ function and expert knowledge is required.
