Greetings and Salutations,
Customers have requested a feature be added for the functionality to block specific MAC addresses from being provided access to the network, a block on specific MAC addresses.
It seems that there are some folks that would like to do “bad” things when given the opportunity :mad: and the administrators trying to protect the network and provide stability to “legitimate” users would like to more easily thwart these “evil” folks from being allowed to connect to the network. There are some “work-arounds” to accomplish a similar result, however, it is more complicated than it “needs to be.”
Please thoughtfully consider adding the ability to easily block a given MAC address from accessing the network (LAN) much like other networking devices allow. Adding this functionality to the “road map” for future releases of firmware enhancements would be very helpful.
Another thread posted in these forums regarding this feature request can be referenced here.
Thank you kindly, forum community, for your input and to the Peplink team for thoughtfully considering community input.
