Layer 7


#1

Sorry in advance if this has been asked.

Are there any plans on putting Layer 7 Application Firewall support in?


#2

What kind of protocol that you want the layer 7 filtered out? Would you provide the details description on it?


#3

We’ve been told by our parent company that our firewall must support Layer 7 Application Control. Here are links to what they are referring to.

Hi, I really need to get an update on this, if I cannot get one I will be forced to use another provider. Thanks.

For the current firmware, it can only perform web blocking (http://www.peplink.com/index.php?view=faq&id=256&path=29) and the normal firewall policy blocking (http://www.peplink.com/index.php?view=faq&id=244&path=16).
