    ISB SOHO Router




    Configuration Continued....


    If your ISP supplies fixed IP account details, here is the place to put them in. Once again nothing to configure here J



    On the status page we see again that we are connected. We also get an IP address, Gateway, DNS, all automatically supplied by the ISP using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This self configuration happens when you power up the ISB SOHO, it puts out a request for a DHCP server, the ISP’s network is looking for such requests and will respond accordingly. At the bottom is a log which has a limited reported facility on the status of the ISB SOHO’s ports.


    Now because all of our LAN computers are also DHCP clients, and are looking for a DHCP server, we can configure the ISB SOHO to supply such a service. Here we told the ISB SOHO that it was to hand out DHCP LAN address in the range 192.168.2- 51. As can be seen 2x hosts are already live (DHCP table).


    One should definitely configure the management password (make it alpha-numeric), this will stop anyone from tampering with the ISB SOHO’s configuration. You cannot access the management interface from the WAN side unless you explicitly configure “Remote IP Access Range” within the “Expert level”., which is a good precaution.


    A useful feature here is the “Connect on Demand & Idle Time out” which means that if the ISB SOHO does not see traffic outbound it hangs up the link. If you wish to have the link up all the time, set the “Idle time out” to 0, but leave the “Connect on Demand” enabled.


    Once again nothing to configure here J The “TZO Custom….” appears to be a new feature, but the manual makes no reference to this service, so it remains a mystery.

    : This in from the fine folks at Nexland "
    As for TZO, it was a feature added after the manual was printed. It is basically self explanatory if you click on the Help page or if you go to the "click for free trial" link on the DynamicDNS page. This will take you to a Nexland branded page at TZO that will provide settings for the unit."


    The ISB SOHO in default form will have a simple view on routing i.e. it knows about it’s LAN network, and so any other IP network address is assumed to be external through the WAN port. You can reference other specific networks availability through the LAN or WAN ports by configuring static network routes. If you don’t know what you are doing it’s best left alone. There is another option in “Expert Level”, where you can configure Dynamic RIP2 routing instead of static routing.
