Virtual servers can be used for setting up public services on your LAN. A virtual server is defined as a service port, and all requests from Internet to this service port will be redirected to the computer specified by the server IP. Any PC that was used for a virtual server must have a static or reserved IP address because its IP address may change when using the DHCP function.

Note: If you set the service port of the virtual server as 80, you must set the Web management port on System Tools → Manage Control page to be any other value except 80 such as 8080. Otherwise there will be a conflict to disable the virtual server.
