Address Pool

 

Dialog box element Description

Address list

Lists the configured ranges of public IP addresses assigned to you. The address ranges are typically obtained from your Internet service provider.

Reservations

Click to reserve specific public IP addresses from the configured ranges that cannot be used for address translation. Reserved public IP addresses can be used for Internet Web servers that are placed on the private network. You cannot configure a reservation until you configure at least one IP address pool.

Add Address Pool

 

Dialog box element Description

The IP address (in dotted decimal notation) of the starting number of your public address pool.

Mask

End address

The IP address (in dotted decimal notation) of the ending number of your public address pool.

Reserve Address

 

Dialog box element Description

Address list

Add Reservation

 

Dialog box element Description

For this computer on the private network

The IP address of the private network computer that you want to make available to public network users.

Allow incoming sessions to this address

Specifies whether sessions from the public network are allowed. If you are setting up a server, such as a Web server, and you want to make it accessible for Internet users, select this check box. Normally, the only traffic that is allowed from the public network is traffic sent in response to sessions initiated from the private network.
