Network settings tab

IPv6 support

ON / OFF Set the switch to ON to enable IPv6 support on the firewall.
To find out which modules support IPv6 and what changes have been made to the various modules in the administration interface, please refer to the section Enabling IPv6 in this guide.

As this action is irreversible, you are advised to back up your configuration before enabling support. To revert to IPv4 support only, you will need to reset your configuration to its factory settings before you can restore the backup of this configuration.  Reset your configuration by pressing the reset button if your appliance has one, or by using the “defaultconfig” CLI command in console mode.

Proxy server

ON / OFF Set the switch to ON to enable the use of a proxy when the firewall accesses the Internet for ActiveUpdate and LicenseUpdate services.
Server This field makes it possible to specify the object corresponding to the server that the firewall will use as a proxy.
Port This field allows specifying the port used by the firewall to contact the proxy.
Identifier This field allows defining an ID that the firewall will use to authenticate with a proxy.
Password Define a password that the firewall will need in order to access the proxy server.

DNS servers allow the firewall to resolve (find out IP addresses based on a host name) objects or hosts configured in “Automatic” DNS resolution.
