TelVue® takes customer security very seriously and highly recommends the following to all TelVue customers:
Security configuration requires admin-level privileges. Use this option to manage your firewall rules. To start, click on firewall. The current firewall rules are displayed.
To add a firewall rule, enter the information in the Add Rule section at the top of the page.
Click the Submit button on the right to add the rule.
To delete a firewall rule, click the Delete button to the right of that rule.
When the firewall is running, its status is STARTED. In rare cases you might want to stop the firewall briefly. For example, too many trusted machines are suddenly blocked and you need to give someone access to diagnose the problem. To stop the firewall, click the Stop button. Be sure to start the firewall again when the work is complete.
Adding a stream automatically adds a rule to the list.
If you have remote users, add a firewall rule so they can continue using remote access. You must be on-site to add a rule; you cannot add one remotely.
It is good practice to record your rules, such by printing the firewall screen to paper or a file and keeping it in a secure location off your network.
Do not delete the netbios rules. They are for Samba access.
In some cases you might want to return the firewall rules to the original configuration that came with your server. For example, too many individual rules seem to conflict with one another. Keep in mind that this will delete the firewall rules for active streams, remote users, etc. Record your firewall rules, then click the Restore Initial Configuration button.
To return to the configuration page, click the Config tab.
