How many Port forwarding have you set?


AXS GUARD therefore recommends the use of Reverse Proxy functionality. 
This feature can also be additionally secured with strong authentication.

Supported Protocols:

  • TCP/IP protocols: HTTP(S) and FTP

  • Application protocols: WebSocket, RPC over HTTP, MAPI over HTTP, EWS and RDP (via a remote desktop gateway)

Features: 

  • Base URL Protection

  • RFC Compliance & Request Filtering

  • Predefined & Custom Applications
