Can someone tell me what the "WAN Blocking" setting actually does? I've seen threads that talk about having to disable the WAN Blocking setting to do port forwarding. But what does it actually do and why would I have it enabled or disabled? By default, my TWC Ubee modem has it enabled.
Enable the Block WAN Request feature to prevent other Internet users from detecting your home network. This feature also hides your network ports to make it more difficult for hackers to access your network.
