Disabling Panoramic Wifi Advanced Security Sevice
I'm setting up port forwarding to get remote access to a home desktop and have verified functionality by disabling the security service to allow port forwarding. Couple questions related to this -
1) What are the implications of disabling this service? The my-services-disabling page warns that you'll lose "24/7 threat monitoring and real-time reporting." Does this include IP-Reputation blocks or are those always made regardless? Any other valuable features besides the audit log (and stuff on https://www.cox.com/residential/support/cox-panoramic-wifi-app-advanced-security-service.html)?
2) Allow Access functionality -
a) Can it be extended past 1 hr? If I were to able keep the security service on and allow access for a given IP for 1 business day (or even longer, really) it would be much more useful.
b) Can you get faster access to notifications than is provided via the wifi.cox.com page? It seems hit or miss on how responsive it is. I haven't tried the mobile app yet; I try to keep as little on my phone as possible.
3) Bonus Question! I've noticed I can ssh into the machine even with the security service enabled for about 30sec before the pipe breaks. Any guesses? Not super important, but curious.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
