I've seen a few threads on here (and the rest of the internet) relating to this, but I've not seen a definitive answer as to whether or not it's possible to completely disable the firewall on this device. I think because nearly everything else on the device can be set to inactive--and this is clearly marked as active--that I'm assuming it can be as well. I don't trust this firewall to handle or limit my concurrent connections or mess with my protocol timeouts, I have my own devices for that, thankyouverymuch.
I'll be using the DMZplus mode in order to utilise my own routing and switching hardware (and now that I think about it (based on menu location) maybe this is part of the firewall service...hmm...) and it'd sure be nice to be able to disable the other ports on the device (or at least filter them by MAC address). I know this is probably asking a lot for a residential device, but I'm hoping somebody out there knows of a way to console into this device or to get to a much more advanced menu.
That said, I'm a brand spanking new U-verse customer (hello!) and look forward to seeing what goes on at this forum. Good to see AT&T'll lift the restriction on port 25.

There's no magic menu available on the device, unfortunately.
Welcome to the forum.
