Description (see setting description format info here)
|Function:||Defines whether the DS will accept incoming data connections from any network host (filtering disabled) or specific host only (filtering enabled)|
|Post-initialization value:||0 (disabled)|
|Change takes effect:||After reboot|
|Relevance conditions:||Current Routing Mode (RM) [setting/parameter]= 0 (server) or 1 (server/client) |
When Source IP Filtering is 0 (disabled) the DS will accept an incoming data connection from any network host.
When Source IP Filtering is 1 (enabled) the DS will accept an incoming data connection only from host whose IP-address matches the one specified by current Destination IP-address [setting/parameter].
Since out-of-band on-the-fly commands (network-side parameters issued using Parameter (P) command) can also be considered a part of a data connection the DS will reject any such command that comes from a "wrong" IP-address while source IP-address filtering is enabled.
This setting is irrelevant when current Routing Mode (RM) [setting/parameter] is 2 (client) because in this mode the DS won't accept incoming connections at all.
