Well how interesting!
No where in the manuals does it show the Firewall.
On mine there is a button labeled "Firewall" between
Filter and SNMP that is not in the manual but in
the machine firmware. It enables Firewall rules
for LAN, WAN, deny, allow, addresses, ports, etc.
My DI screenshot:
I don't know how many rules I can have.
At the moment I have two active including denying
192.###.###.### from connecting to this machine.
Also denying a specific WAN address.
