BEFSX41 Creating Inbound Traffic Policy

BEFSX41 V2.1

Firmware: 1.52.16

 

The manual states how to create an inbound traffic policy but if you follow the directions there is no place to select inbound traffic.

 

From the manual: 

To Create an Inbound Traffic Policy
1. Enter a Policy Name in the field provided. Select
Inbound Traffic as the Policy Type.
2. Enter the IP Address from which you want to block.
Select the Protocol: TCP, UDP, or Both. Enter the port
number or select Any. Enter the IP Address to which
you want to block.
3. Select Deny or Allow as appropriate.
4. By selecting the appropriate setting next to Days and
Time, choose when the Inbound Traffic will be filtered.
5. Lastly, click the Save Settings button to activate the
policy.
When finished making your changes on this tab, click the
Save Settings button to save these changes, or click the
Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

 

I want to filter out a range of ip addresses from trying to connect to my network. I thought this would do it and I can't seem to figure this out. Any help would be appreciated

Hi, I believe this router has no option for IP range.

Re: BEFSX41 Creating Inbound Traffic Policy

The user manual for this router explicitly lists a section for creating inbound traffic policies, but the “Policy Type” referenced in it is not to be found on the router (we have firmware 1.52.15).

 

Is the user manual incorrect and the router does not, in fact, offer this service? If it does, where does one set the Policy Type?

It does not support this. Is an error in the manual.
