DSL-G684T Wireless ADSL Router User Guide
Since some applications are not compatible with NAT, the Router supports use of a DMZ IP address for a single host on
the LAN. This IP address is not protected by NAT and will therefore be visible to agents on the Internet with the right
type of software. Keep in mind that any client PC in the DMZ will be exposed to various types of security risks. If you
use the DMZ, take measures (such as client-based virus protection) to protect the remaining client PCs on your LAN
from possible contamination through the DMZ.
DMZ window
To designate a DMZ IP address, select the Enabled radio button, type in the IP Address of the server or device on your
LAN, and click the Apply button. To remove DMZ status from the designated IP address, select the Disabled radio
button and click Apply. It will be necessary to save the settings and reboot the Router before the DMZ is activated.
