Setting up Rawstream Network Security
Rawstream Network Security is a cloud-based DNS filtering service for networks and guest WiFi.
Network Security works on the basis of "networks". A network is made up of a public IP and the set of policies that are to be applied to that IP. You need to define a network for each public IP you'd like to filter.
Determine if the network has a static or a dynamic public IP. Networks with dynamic public IPs may require additional steps.
Static Public IP
For networks with a static public IP, configure either the WiFi access points or the internet router to forward DNS requests to Rawstream DNS.
Dynamic Public IP
Networks with a dynamic public IP require an client installed on a machine on the network to update Rawstream with the network's public IP as it changes.
More information on supported dynamic IP clients.
- Create a Rawstream Account
- Login to Rawstream Dashboard
- Create a new Network Static Public IP | Dynamic Public IP
- Set network to forward DNS requests to Rawstream DNS
First create the network in the Rawstream dashboard, before updating your network to use Rawstream's DNS servers. Rawstream DNS servers drop packets from unknown networks.
