Alias Not Working But Single IP's Do



  • Hi,

    I have set up a schedule to block my kids devices after 20:30 which works great if I use a single IP. As they have many devices I created an alias and entered the IP's concerned.

    This unfortunately does not block the devices? I have entered the Alias in place of a single IP address

    If I change the source to a single IP it will block that device as expected, any ideas?

    Many Thanks in Advance!



  • The alias should be applied to each included IP in the same way.

    However, consider that already existing connections (existing states) are not closed when the scheduled block rule gets active.
    You can set up a scheduled pass rule (you will have to adjust the schedule time) followed by a static block rule to achieve this.
