Do I configure port filtering and port forwarding with the same interface on simpler home-office routers?
Posted on 2011-05-04
I'm not a networking guy, by any stretch, but I will occasionally remote into the office Cisco ASA 5505 firewall and do some simple configuration. With the Cisco, if you want to open a port and then configuring port forwarding, it's a two-step process.
1. Open the port in the firewall.
2. Configure port forwarding for the port.
I was configuring a D-Link yesterday and it appeared that the port filtering and port forwarding was combined into one interface Does that seem right?
