Help configuring Rules
i am new to pFsense and i currently running a test server. i have done some research, watch some videos and done some tutorials.
- what i am trying to do.
i want to deny traffic by default an manually allow each IP/User
i want to limit certain laptops to limited internet time and have access to an internet calendar and email.
i want to limit 2 computers on the network to the calendar only.
i want to limit bandwidth on other laptops and devices.
i want to give unrestricted access to certain devices
assess DVR for local and external networks.
VPN to a Server.
every one can print.
- What i know and can do
i have a wan and lan interface.
i can deny traffic.
i can deny individual websites
i can port forward.
haven't looked at vpn just yet
i am a little confused. i want to deny all, look in the leased dchp table, find the user and assign static ip. Then go back and assign rule/s to the ip with predefined aliases.
am i going about this the wrong way? i want deny everyone ( about 15 users) and manually allow them online, by their mac/ip with restrictions.
is there a way i can do a group? i dont know about Vlan.
Here are some basics on setting up custom rules, as opposed to having the default 'allow all' rule on outbound LAN rules:
Firewall rule schedules:
If you're really considering making your DVR available from external networks, make sure you lock down access to it - change the default admin password, for starters. The recent Dyn DDoS attack was carried out using mostly unsecured webcams and DVRs which were open to the internet.
