Generally, NAT translates only the address in the IP packet header and the port number in the TCP/UDP header. Packets of some protocols such as DNS and FTP contain the IP address or port number in the data fields. Such contents cannot be translated through NAT. Therefore, communication between the internal network and external networks will fail.

To solve this problem, NAT must be able to identify the IP address or port information in the data field. The application level gateway (ALG) function enables the NAT device to identify the IP address or port number in the data field, and translate addresses according to the mapping table. The device provides the ALG function, so the device can support various special application protocols, including DNS, FTP, SIP, PPTP and RTSP.


  • Configuring the ALG
    1. Log in to the web platform, and choose IP Service > NAT. Figure 13-4 shows the Global Settings area.

    2. In the Global Settings area, select application protocols supported by ALG.
    3. Click Apply. In the dialog box indicating that the operation succeeds that is displayed, click OK. The ALG configuration is complete.
