Examples of ZTE-H268A firewall filter settings

Post by chrismugdan » Sat Jul 13, 2019 6:10 pm

Are there any examples of firewall filter settings for the ZTE-H268A as delivered for the NBN by Exetel?

perhaps i can help explain what i think he is referring too.

in filter criteria under the security tab on the ZTE H268A there are IP Filter - IPv4 and this appears to read like a layer 3 firewall.
for example, i want to port forward 80 TCP to an internal device 192.168.20.100. but i dont want the whole world to be able to hit it.
so i would add filter criteria that says i only allow 115.70.33.221 to be able to communicate inbound on that port.

i have tried using it and it is hopelessly ineffective.
so i would like to know this is supposed to be implemented myself.

Thank you for reaching out. Please forward the screenshot of the configuration you have done and your specific requirement to residentialsupport@exetel.com.au so we could check this on our end and advise you accordingly to implement from your end.

Also, below is the modem manual and you may refer the section 4.3 for security configurations.
