There is not a solid firewall set, like those rules to block atacks ...

Good point! Although the OEM firmware native to the TP-Link TL-WR1043ND offers enable/disable switches for things like SPI, DoS, UDP Flood, TCP-SYN Flood, and Ignore Ping from WAN (in addition to the "Access Restrictions" that are clearly implemented in Gargoyle), I don't immediately see any way to control these features through Gargoyle. Also no clear way to set up port filters for individual remote sites.

(Maybe I'm missing something. It's difficult for me to learn the features of Gargoyle through the clumsy on-line "Configuration Guide." A .PDF users manual would have been much more user-friendly...) -- jclarkw

Did I get the above right? If not, can somebody point me to the relevant instructions? -- jclarkw
