    I am a little confused about the selection of 'ethernet type' when adding or editing rules. The RFC documentations mentioned in the help file is really too theoretical:mad:
    Is there some general explanation and criteria?

    Hi nuser :)

    The main ethernet types are: all, IP, ARP, IPv4, IPv6 ...

    Most of the time you have to set your rule to IP (IPv4+IPv6) or IPv4 ....
    ARP is used for Address Resolution Protocol used locally to translate IP addr. <=> MAC Addr.

    thanks, Climenole.
    I have spent almost one day to search this forum and research.:D

    the last one is for wireless?

    If I select "other", what will happen?

    What's the choice if I am using ADSL MODEM?

    Sorry for so many questions.

    Hi nuser :)

    Don't be sorry for your "many" questions. That's correct to ask.

    1- Last one: wireless: I guess so but I'm not sure...

    2- Other: nothings except if you have other protocols used in your system...
    Try it ! (and verify if I'm right or wrong...) ;)

    3- ADSL modem: this is related to an other level of the TCP-IP...
    You have to choose the right network interface in the option tab of LNS...

    :)
