Blocking internet traffic from single LAN client
I must be missing something simple here. Goal is to block Internet access to my kid's iPad during a certain time period (aka… when she should be sleeping).
I setup a schedule and block rule under LAN and moved it to the top of the list. Internet was still accessible during the schedule period. I removed the schedule to troubleshoot, and internet access is still not being blocked. Firewall rule is configured as follows:
Address family: IPv4
Source: I have the source set as the internal IP address of her iPad, which I have assigned a DHCP reservation on my DHCP server so her iPad is always assigned the same IP address.
I have reset states.
Try modify the address family to IPv4+IPv6 in your rule.
Ah! I think your right.
I can't use IPv4+IPv6 because an IPv4 address can not be used in combined IPv4 + IPv6 rules.
How would I block IPv6 from a single client?
Same way as IPv4, but with an IPv6 address (using a second rule)…. IPv6 addressing can be much more difficult though, as it isn't always as static as the IPv4 side - depending on how you are doing IPv6 addressing on your network.
That is the main reason I still block all IPv6 going out of my networks.
