A wrong IP address in the port forwarding rule?

Port forwarding can sometimes be a nerve-wracking problem. Though everything is set up correctly an IP Address can sometimes go unseen and the user keeps on clicking the save button but nothing works. Depending on which router is installed (Some routers are easier than others at setting up port forwarding rules) it can be easy to set up, but not easy to get working. Most routers, like Linksys, only let you put in the last part of the IP address to forward to (making sure the user doesn’t put in an internet IP instead). While other routers let you put the whole IP in (Some users accidentally put the internet IP instead of the Local IP in). 


People can get confused about what IP address they should put in. Other times people may want to make a port forwarding rule for their devices or IP cameras and put the wrong IP in as well. To make sure the port forwarding rule is working correctly, the IP address of the rule should point to the computer, or machine, you want the connection to go to. 


Some users have put internet IP’s in or just the wrong IP altogether. Why will someone put a wrong IP address as it is the most essential thing to remember while setting up port forwarding, you need to remember that a lot of home users are new to port forwarding and IP addresses. They don’t always understand the differences between a LAN ( a local network) and a WAN (the internet).

Camera and video surveillance have saved millions of investments.

Thinking of investing in a new construction site? That’s considered an amazing idea in the world of real estate. Earning millions through hard work and patience, individuals and groups collaborate to invest in something big that would give them a great return in the coming years. A large amount is invested during the construction phase and everyone i.e. buyer and the seller to use the best team of experts to work on their site with precision and accuracy.


If we consider a very essential factor during the construction phase is that of on-site security that is open to the entire outside world. There might be many who will be happy and contented to see something new coming up but some of them are not happy and somewhere want to get things at a halt. They try different methods to hinder the progress at a construction site.Sometimes it becomes difficult to monitor the site throughout and keeping a security guard is a good option but not relying on a single individual to protect the whole site one can opt for a system that will help in protecting the site for the maximum time.


Camera security and video surveillance have helped thousands of construction site owners in saving unforeseen expenses and has prevented thefts and intrusions at a greater level. Rapid advancement in technology has brought everything at your fingertips where you can monitor or even hire a team of experts to monitor the site during your absence. Don’t wait for an intrusion or theft. A small investment will help in saving valuable assets worth millions at the site.

IP Address Blacklists

IP blacklists

Kerio Control is able to log and block traffic from IP addresses of known intruders (so-called blacklists). Such method of detection and blocking of intruders is much faster and also less demanding than detection of the individual intrusion types. However, there are also disadvantages. Blacklists cannot include IP addresses of all possible intruders. Blacklists may also include IP addresses of legitimate clients or servers. Therefore, you can set the same actions for blacklists as for detected intrusions.

Automatic updates

For correct functionality of the intrusion detection system, update databases of known intrusions and intruder IP addresses regularly.

Under normal circumstances there is no reason to disable automatic updates — non-updated databases decrease the effectiveness of the intrusion prevention system.

Though expensive, but Netgear’s Arlo Pro 2 is a capable home camera system

Here’s the thing about home security systems: they are expensive, usually require experts to install them, and for the good ones you’ll need to pay a monthly fee starting at $30 to have a company monitor them. While they won’t provide the same level of security as a professionally installed system from ADT or Slomin, the current wave of smart home cameras released by companies such as Nest, Logitech, and even Amazon have made security systems cheaper and easier to install and monitor from your smartphone. And the camera that still leads the pack in terms of ease of use is Netgear’s Arlo.

The newest addition to the lineup is the Arlo Pro 2, its latest wireless camera that works both indoors and outdoors. Before we even get into the details, the Arlo Pro 2 already checks the three main boxes — no wires, 1080p HD stream, and weatherproof — that you’d be hard-pressed to find in any other security camera. It also features free cloud storage for a week, two-way audio, a rechargeable battery that lasts six months, and a 130-degree field of view.

Setting up the Arlo Pro 2 system is simple. The camera system is sold with two cameras and a base station that plugs into your router to manage the connections. (You can plug in an external hard drive to the base station to back up your recordings locally.) Once you sync the camera with the base station, you can easily mount the camera on any wall with a screwdriver and the included magnetized mount in about five minutes. The included mounts keep the camera close to the wall, but you can buy extended mounts (great for mounting it on the side of your house or on a tree outdoors) for $19.

Ip Addresses, Ports and Security System

Intrusion prevention system overview

Kerio Control integrates Snort, an intrusion detection and prevention system protecting the firewall and the local network from known network intrusions.

A network intrusion is network traffic that impacts the functionality or security of the victim-host. A typical attribute of intrusions is their apparent legitimacy and it is difficult to uncover such traffic and filter it simply by traffic rules. Let us use Denial of Service intrusion as an example — too many connections are established on a port to use up the system resources of the server application so that no other users can connect. However, the firewall considers this act only as access to an allowed port.
