Vigor router supports Country Object. With this feature, it will be easier for the network administrator to allow or block access to an IP address of a specific country. For example, the network administrator can block certain countries from connecting the port to access the internal server to prevent attacks. Or, to restrict the destination that LAN users can access to the selected countries only. This note demonstrates how to allow the LAN hosts to access the UK websites only.

1. Create a Country Object. Go to Objects Setting >> Country Object page. Click an available index, give a profile Name and select Country.
To block all websites except for those in the UK, we will need to create two firewall rules. The first one to block all websites, and the second to allow access to websites in the UK.
2. Create the rule blocks all sites, go to Firewall >> Filter Setup >> Default Data Filter Set, and click an available rule to edit.
3. Create another rule to allow access to the websites of the UK. Go back to Default Data Filter page, and click an available rule which follows behind the rule created in the previous step.
Now we can try to access a few websites to verify the firewall setting.
