OpenWrt's firewall management application fw3 has three provisioning mechanisms. Most of the information in this wiki will focus on the configuration files and content. LuCI is a good mechanism to view and modify the firewall configuration.
UCI is useful to view the firewall configuration, but not to do any meaningful modifications for the following reasons:. The defaults section declares global firewall settings which do not belong to specific zones:.
It is possible to include custom firewall scripts by specifying one or more include sections in the firewall configuration:. Includes of type script may contain arbitrary commands, for example advanced iptables rules or tc commands required for traffic shaping. Use if your uhttpd is hidden behind CF proxy. Port forwardings DNAT are defined by redirect sections. This could pose a security risk to the application running on the destination port the config section opens.
The response could be openclosedor stealth drop. Whereas stealthed ports drop packets; from the perspective of the probing system Gibson Researchthat system cannot definitively know if those packets may, or may not be reaching the destination host.
SNAT can also be done manually:. A zone section groups one or more interfaces and serves as a source or destination for forwardingsrules and redirects. The forwarding sections control the traffic flow between zonesand may enable MSS clamping for specific directions. The iptables rules generated for this section rely on the state match which needs connection tracking to work.
The rule section is used to define basic accept, drop, or reject rules to allow or restrict access to specific ports or hosts. As described above, the option family is used for distinguishing between IPv4IPv6 and both protocols. However the family is inferred automatically if IPv6 addresses are used:.

One of the most common implementations of this would be for supporting a publicly accessible server such as web on a local internet connection or your gaming console Xbox,PS4.
The server sits in the DMZ and can be accessed from the Internet, but it cannot access the trusted network. The eth0 device maps to the physical WAN port on the back of the router. The switch eth1 includes a number of ports, including the four physical ones on the back of the router.
This means that physical connections in those four ports at the back are on the same virtual switch and are able to communicate with each other. You can imagine that if I changed the VLAN of one of those ports to VLAN 10, that the device plugged into that port would no-longer be able to communicate with other devices on the switch.
This is the basis for our DMZ. Note: The port numbers on the switch in OpenWRT do not necessarily map in the right direction to the back of the router. The setting tagged means that the switch should expect that traffic leaving the port has already been tagged, perhaps by the operating system running on the device which is attached to the port.
Routing Example: Bridged DMZ
In OpenWRT you create virtual network interfaces which map to physical devices on the router. Set IPv4 netmask to It has a new firewall policy assigned to it, dmz, which we now need to configure.
That's all. The same does Gargoyle Thats i did in mine. If you have another solution to DMZ or make this simpler I am just learning In many cases it is something like "trial and error". Something like that? I test your rule right now Because that's what you put. You do need to put the full range of ports, that's a DMZ, after all.The web interface remains accessible through the browser at its usual IP address Installing the packages obviously requires an already existing internet connection.
When running server applications on the router or network, additional configuration is necessary to make them accessible from the internet. Form now on, all incoming connections are passed directly to OpenWRT. In contrast to what other guides say, the NAT setting can stay at its default conebecause it does not have any influence on the DMZ behavior. Hi could you please tell me The firmware, UI and hardware versione of your device. I cannot see any dmz settings in my hilink device. I have a es Do you have a 3rd party branded dongle?
Hi there! What you need is to install a modified webui and you will get DMZ, porta forwarding, firewall and more. Feel free to mail me at gnuton at gnuton. Have you turned DHCP off in your computer? If it s so you can re-enable it. In that case you could set I cannot configure this thru the WebUI, cause this function is not included in there. IP addresses? Thanks in advance. Thanks Antonio. I am without it now for 2 days, but will try as described by setting a static on my machine and going in that way.
This works on OpenWRT with the appropriate modules too lazy to look them up on my openwrt now.
It worked like a charme. Later on I found out this is caused by the extra network the 4G modem sets up.

It only takes a minute to sign up. My settings: I can't embed images yet Pic: Firewall Zone Settings. In the picture, if I uncheck Masquerading in the second line, I'll lose my access to the Internet. If not, what does it mean? It depends tm. Of course one can argue that it would make more sense to enable masquerading on the LAN interface, since this is the network that is being masqueraded, so it's more a matter of perspective.

My router runs OpenWrt Attitude Adjustment Cnly Cnly 4 4 bronze badges. Based on your image, I think you are doing something similar to me: trying to use the wifi as the wan.

Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It only takes a minute to sign up. So, it should be accessible from any computer and it needs to access some of them, too. I have met similar problem and I can share solution which appears to be very simple. In OpenWRT the feature you are looking at is plain port forward. That will work exactly the same as in other routers firmware "DMZ host", the host with ALL external traffic redirected to it by default. To have more security I recommend you to forward only ports you need, without exposing it widely to Internet.
The rules are processed in the order, so the first one met condition and others do not work. As advised above, I'd really recommend just forwarding the port s needed for discovery and data retrieval.
Forwarding all ports will expose the administration login mechanism on your device to the entire internet. Best way to research this is to look at your product manual.
Likely it will recommend opening certain ports on a firewall, this is where you'll get the information you need. Sign up to join this community. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered.

Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It only takes a minute to sign up. I'm doing this all in Luci. I'm not sure if there are any other relevant files I should include. So my goal is to create a DMZ for my home server currently situated at First, I created a vlan for my router's lan port 1 which holds my server :. Next, I created the interface. It uses an IP in And finally, my firewall settings.
I've added no custom routing yet because it doesn't seem to be needed. So, with everything in these screenshots, I've tested things out and they seem to be in order. I can ssh to the server just fine, but I can't so much as ping the gateway from the server, and traffic seems to pass normally with the internet. So I believe it's working correctly now, but I've never done this before so I wanted to see if anyone sees anything wrong with what's been done here.

It also provides firewall security rules to isolate your guest network from the rest. After logging into the web-interface, manoeuvre to the Wifi page under Network.
Click Add over the wireless controller e. A new interface will be added as shown here: As you can see, our new wireless controller is created, and we named it guest. Next up is configuring it. Choose the Edit option for the controller. You will need to create a new network, as you can see we named our new network guest here: Also, make sure to set up wireless security if you want to protect the connection.
Now if you manoeuvre to the Interfaces page under Network, and you should see your new interface, looking similar to this: You will need to configure your interface before it is useful.

Choose Editpick the protocol Static addressand fill out your chosen IPv4 address. We chose However, avoid using Remember to set the netmask. You will also need to enable DHCPwe chose to go with the default options here except for the Leasetime which is only one hour, suitable for environments where a large number of guests connect and leave through a day.
Notice that you have a Firewall Settings tab to the far right of the General Setup tab. Make sure you visit this tab, and create a new zone for your guest, like we have done here:. Now you are just about done. That last thing we need to do is to allow traffic between your guest network and WAN in the firewall.
Go to the Firewall page under Networkchoose Edit for your guest zone. The last thing we need to do is to give our guests access to the Internet. We need to create two rules, which we can do from the Traffic rules tab under the Firewall tab. Both rules can be put in under Open ports on router:. Again edit the rule, setting Source zone to guestand set Destination zone to Device input.
When you are done it should look like this:. If you had firewall rules to implement Parental Control, you might have to review them now. User Tools Register Log In. Site Tools Search. Sidebar Welcome to the OpenWrt Project.
