Previously, Firewall Outbound Rules were successfully blocking LAN Computer from accessing two particular websites and one entire domain.
Recently it was found that LAN Computer could access the blocked websites and domain.
Two Test rules were added to Block All access by LAN computer to Anywhere. One rule used LAN computer’s assigned IP address and other rule used computer’s MAC ID. Both rules were put at very top of List (first rules to be encountered). Both rules were setup to Log events.
Changes were Applied.
Despite the rules, the computer could access any website. There were no entries in Event Log for computer.
The PepLink router was rebooted. Testing repeated. Same results.
One thing that is different: The PepLink Router is currently running from Mobile Internet, not normal WAN-1.
Are Firewall Outbound Rules bypassed when running from Mobile Internet (USB Cellular Modem)?
