Block clients based on MAC address in Incontrol


#1

I want to block some clients on our network for a group of routers. I know I can do this per device by creating an outbound firewall rule.

Now I tried to export the configuration of one router and import it in Incontrol -> Network Settings > Firewall Rules. But I get an error that the config contains no firewall rules.

Is there a way to block a device globally with InControl?

Hello Ruud,

Can you please confirm that the config you’re trying to upload to IC2 has firewall rules already configured? If the config file is the default “Allow/Allow” you will get the Error.

You’ll need a Master/Golden config that has already been configured to block those MAC addresses before uploading.

I forgot to apply the rules before I made the export.
