As indicated on www.netgear.org, an unofficial web site dedicated to
Netgear's popular RT311 and RT314, it is possible to disable their
HTTP, FTP and Telnet daemons using the hack below.
"Disalbing Internal HTTP, FTP and telnet Server of the Netgear to
protect it from all connection
Warning: This solution will disable TCP connection to Netgear box
completely (both LAN & WAN). You can make the change while you have
active telnet connection but as soon as you disconnect, you'll not be
able to access to the box via any TCP connection again (until reboot).
Routing functions work properly however.
Goto 24.8 (CLI) interface and enter:
ip tcp mss 0
This will remain effective until reboot. If you want this permanent
you need to modify autoexec.net file on router. You can edit
autoexec.net via the following command.
sys edit autoexec.net
This is a line editor. Find the line that reads "ip tcp mss 512" and
replace 512 with 0. After reboot you will only access the router via
serial cable. If you don't have serial cable don't do this!
THIS WILL ALSO BLOCK DDNS UPDATE. IF YOU USE DDNS, DO NOT USE THAT TWEAK!
