    Hi all :)

    There was a STICKY post from the user Patrice about the routers setup with LnS. This sticky post was removed ... :cautious:

    Why ? o_O

    Hi Climenole,

    I've unsticked this post because my feeling was it was a bit old, and after reading some posts, some people found the post complicated. And actually I was not completely sure this kind of configuration was really required, for people having a router (most of the time there is nothing special to do).

    If I'm wrong, and finally if this post was useful, I can put it again as sticky, no problem.

    Frederic

    Hi Frédéric :)

    Yes, the post was a bit complicated...

    But router needs rules for the UDP and IGMP packets, no?

    May be a reviewed information on the official LnS FAQ will be better than an outdated post here.

    Have a nice day.

    :)

    Hi Climenole,
    I don't know, I've never experienced this directly by myself.

    Looking at the other recent post about router, it seems some router rules are necessary sometimes.
    Maybe a specific .rie could be created. But I'm not sure when and why sometimes rules are required and sometimes not. Is there different kind of routers ? or routers implementing protocols, and some others don't ?

    Frederic

    Hi Frédéric :)

    It's seems it's not so easy. Look at this recent post:

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=178107

    At least some routers need rules for IGMP and UDP packets on NetBios ports...

    :)
