Thanks again for the reply and for taking the time to walk me through this! I’ve really looked through docs and forum posts… anyhow I now have simple rules as shown below. I have internet access from the LAN and if I scan ports from web based port scanners it says everything is closed. Is this basically secure?!



I will start a new thread in a minute regarding virtual servers / port forwarding as this is key to what I’m trying to achieve with Zeroshell – namely we have 2 sip ata’s for VOIP on the lan. One of my reasons for using Zeroshell is to get improved QOS for these over what my old router could offer.

Thanks again for your help and I’m planning to write this up clearly as newbie documentation when it’s all working (with due credits)!
