Reference Manual for the Model FVS318 Cable/DSL ProSafe VPN Firewall
Basic Configuration 4-7
A DNS server is a host on the Internet that translates Internet names (such as www
addresses) to numeric IP addresses. Typically your ISP transfers the IP addresses of one or
two DNS servers to your firewall during login. If the ISP does not transfer an address, you
must obtain it from the ISP and enter it manually here. If you enter an address here, you
should reboot your PCs after configuring the firewall.

Configuring for an Account with Login
If the Setup Wizard determines that your Internet service account uses a login protocol such as
PPP over Ethernet (PPPoE), you will be directed to a menu like the PPPoE menu shown in
Figure 4-5 below:

Enter your Account Name (may also be called Host Name) and Domain Name. These
parameters may be necessary to access your ISP’s services such as mail or news servers. If you
leave the Domain Name field blank, the firewall will attempt to learn the domain
automatically from the ISP. If this is not successful, you may need to enter it manually.
2. Enter the PPPoE login user name and password provided by your ISP. These fields are case
sensitive. If you wish to change the login timeout, enter a new value in minutes.
