Pfsense will not reset active connections

  • Hi all,

    I'm trying to block my daughters minecraft access at certain times of the day .. (10 am - 5 pm she can play)  .. I have made a rule which blocks packets during these times, however If she is already playing minecraft pfsense will not kill the connection ..

    How can I get pfsense to kill the connection after 5 pm?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • It won't block it because the server has probably shifted the connection to a different port.

    You will need to install an IP block that blocks her access to the Internet for probably 5-10 minutes at 5pm, long enough for the server to timeout and kill the connection.

    I would set up an infinite (reserved) DHCP lease so that her system always gets the same IP address.
