Introduced

Description

The meanings of the WEBDFLT bit settings are as follows:

BitMeaning
X'01' Makes ALLOW * the default JANUS WEB rule for non-SSL ports, which allows open access to the port.

When this bit is 0, the default rule for non-SSL ports is DISALLOW *, which means that the port may not be accessed, and so an additional WEB rule for the port must be defined to make the port accessible.

Prior to version 7.6 of Model 204, the default WEB rule for non-SSL ports was ALLOW *, so WEBDFLT=1 produces the same default behavior for non-SSL ports as was provided prior to version 7.6. This default behavior was changed so that system administrators would not provide open access to all Janus Web ports without taking specific action.
