Description:
This document describes how to configure the IPv4 and IPv6 firewall settings for LANCOM Content Filter.


Requirements:


Procedure:

1) IPv4 firewall:

1.1) The firewall needs to be activated in order for the LANCOM Content Filter to function. You enable the IPv4 firewall in the menu Firewall/QoS -> General by using the option IPv4 firewall/QoS enabled.



1.2) A firewall rule must use a special action object that is linked to a content filter profile.

You can find the action object and the firewall rules under Firewall/QoS -> IPv4 Rules.



1.3) In the default settings, the default action objects are located under Action objects.
  • CONTENT-FILTER-BASIC
  • CONTENT-FILTER-WORK
  • CONTENT-FILTER-PARENTAL-CONTROL



These default action objects each use the default content filter profiles that are defined in the content filter configuration in the menu Content Filter -> Profiles -> Profile.

Example:
The action object CONTENT-FILTER-BASIC is used in the default firewall rule CONTENT FILTER, which is activated along with the content filter in order for the filter to function.






2) IPv6 firewall:

As of LCOS version 10.12, the content filter can also be used for IPv6.

1.1) The firewall needs to be activated in order for the LANCOM Content Filter to function. You enable the IPv4 firewall in the menu Firewall/QoS -> General by using the option IPv4 firewall/QoS enabled.



2.2) A firewall rule must use a special action object that is linked to a content filter profile.

You can find the action object and the firewall rules under Firewall/QoS -> IPv6 Rules -> Action objects.

2.3) In the default settings, the default action objects are located under Action objects.

  • CONTENT-FILTER-BASIC
  • CONTENT-FILTER-WORK
  • CONTENT-FILTER-PARENTAL-CONTROL
    Example:
    The action object CONTENT-FILTER-BASIC is used in the default firewall rule CONTENT FILTER , which is activated along with the content filter in order for the filter to function.
