Feature request - MAC Allow & Deny
Not sure if this is the right forum and in case it is not, please point me to the right forum and I will relocate this post.
My home network has few smart devices and ton of IoTs, so had to create separate LANs and the list of MACs I need to add for "Allow" and "Deny" is getting cumbersome to manage in a single textbox.
Is it possible to request a feature to manage MAC Allow and Deny list like the "Aliases" for firewall rules?
Until then ...why not use DHCP reservations and IP address rules instead?
pfSense feature requests should be added in Redmine in general: https://redmine.pfsense.org/
However, no this is not directly possible. pf, the packet filter used by pfSense, is a layer 3 filter it cannot filter by MAC address. So to do this the firewall would have to set a static lease for the MAC to get a fixed IP to use automatically and that would present a number of challenges.
