Question / Issue
Can I disable the firewall?

Answer / Solution
It is possible to disable the LAN-Cell's firewall feature by unchecking the "Enable Firewall" option box on the Firewall screen.

However, Proxicast does not recommend operating the LAN-Cell on cellular or other ISP networks with the firewall disabled.  Most ISP's and cellular network operators provide access to the public Internet -- therefore your LAN-Cell and the equipment connected to it are subject to port-scans and other Internet security threats that the firewall is designed to mitigate.

If you want to have devices connected to the LAN-Cell but "outside" of the firewall, consider activating the DMZ feature of the LAN-Cell.
