Learn how to navigate through some of the advanced settings of your Gateway with a few easy steps using BlueCurve Home. With advanced settings, you can make additional tweaks to your network such as Port Forwarding, customizing your LAN/WAN, and configuring DNS.

 

Note

 

While these settings are available to you via BlueCurve Home and Gateway admin tool, Shaw does not support setup or troubleshooting of advanced network configurations. We recommend changing these settings only if you're familiar with them.

Port Forwarding

  • Port forwarding is commonly enabled for online gaming, VoIP services, and peer-to-peer applications to allows you to direct incoming Internet traffic to a specified device.
  • Port Forwarding can also be manually configured using the Gateway admin tool.

DMZ

  • Enabling a DMZ (demilitarized zone) for a specific device can help troubleshoot communication issues and with an online application.
  • Enabling DMZ poses a security risk and should be used with caution. Consider adjusting port forward settings instead, as the DMZ will disable most security/firewall settings on your Gateway.
