RV042 Can't disable DMZ Host

While trying to configure my RV042, I "turned on" the DMZ Host functionality (under Setup > DMZ Host) by entering the LAN IP address of one of our machines. I now believe that I don't actually want this on. According to the Help page (and also the manual) it says:

"Enter the IP address of the network device that you want to use as a DMZ host. Alternatively, enter zero (0.0.0.0) to disable the DMZ Host."

So I try to enter 0.0.0.0 as the address, and it give me an error:

What am I doing wrong? Are the instructions just incorrect? Is there a way to turn this off?

If the LAN subnet is 192.168.1.x/24, you might want to try 192.168.1.0 instead of 0.0.0.0 to disable DMZ Host.

It accepted my entry of 10.4.20.0 (our subnet is 10.4.20.x). Does this mean that the DMZ Host is now disabled? If this is indeed the correct procedure, may I request a future correction in the Help file and user manual to reflect this? Thanks.

If you could confirm that 10.4.20.0 indeed disables DMZ Host, I could pass it onto the product team to update the help page.

Unfortunitly I'm not sure how to confirm if DMZ Host is disabled. I mistakenly enabled it when trying to get the DMZ working, and (in a different discussion) you informed me that I didn't need to have it enabled. So I was trying to disable it, but was running into the above error. If you can tell me how to test if it's disabled I'd be happy to.
