: The starting and ending IP boxes allow you to define a required encryption level for a specific range of addresses.

Thank you for the explanation. I really wondered what this could be.

: The types of encryption are:
: RC4 RSA R4 stream cipher (fast)
: RC2_ECB RSA R2 block cipher (Electronic Codebook)
: RC2_CBC RSA R2 block cipher (Cipher Block Chaining)
: RC2_CFB RSA R2 block cipher (Cipher Feedback)

: These encryption types are ordered from fastest to slowest. Each of the slower encryption types is safer than the one preceding it.

So what?!? Is RC4 something like ROT13 (no security)? I'am no expert in that. Should i choose the highest level or is this oversized? What is actually a good mix between security and speed for the internet?
