Tips

  • If you are not advanced user or user without networking knowledge please do not try yourself.
  • These are helpful when you have to forward port for your IPCamera or some gaming devices.
  • Ask your Network Admin to do it for you.
  • It's a good habit to change your Livebox password from default to your own.

Warnings

  • Do not change anything you don't understand.
  • Seek help from someone who handles your Internet connection.
  • Do not try to forward your ports unless you have good firewall and AV software, because forwarding ports can open "doors" to hackers, viruses, and spyware. Only forward ports that you know are necessary for your software to work, and be sure that the software using those ports is up-to-date.
  • It can be a good idea to make a note of the original settings, because you have no undo option after you save your settings if they are wrong.
