As a new user, I’m flabbergasted by the technical details of a firewall provided with my brand new BR1 Max. The 193 page manual provides some guidance on how to set up the firewall, but I’m clueless about what ought to be protected against, rules, and how to do individual inbound/outbound settings? is there a firewall for dummies tutorial?

I would take a look at our knowledge base and search “firewall”. We have examples and short guides to get you started to properly configuring your firewall.
