Allow only certain MAC addresses



  • Hi,

    Does it exist options to allow only certain MAC addresses access to the internet?  The DHCP lease allowance based on MAC addresses is too easy to circumvent ;-)

    Thanks for tips on this.

  • Use the static ARP option at the DHCP config page along with deny unknown clients. I think it should prevent using other IP/MAC-combinations than listed in your mappings.



  • OK, but in this case do I HAVE to assign IP addresses too?  I have left this field blank in my list for now.

  • Good question, I haven't tested that yet. You need it, you test it, you tell me  ;D



  • Will do ;-)

    .. especially if you tell me where I can find the dhcp mac config file from the ipcop box shell.  I got locked out because I hadn't listed my web browser computer's nic before I checked the ARP box ;-D

    I'm using the liveCD version and I assume I select 8 to get to the shell.  Which text editor is supplied with pfsense and in which folder is this dhcp mac list xml file?

    AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA…. Sorry couldn't resist.  We are the last people to know anything about IPCopout.

    Sorry, a typo :-(  Of course I meant 'the pfsense box shell'…

    However I have located it ans solved the problem ;-)
