And that’s great in terms of the MAC address white-listing for the outbound policy but its too bad I have 85 Polycom Soundpoint IP Phones on the network and I would have to create 85 outbound policies, which is insane!
It would be cool if say you had a drop down to manually type in as many MAC address or IP address that are needed, so to only create 1 outbound policy.
What would be even more cool for someone like me is if you had that same drop down to manually enter MAC’s or IP’s but we were able to enter the first 5-6 numbers or letters, say on the MAC address of the phones. Most if not all Polycom phones for example start with a MAC of “0004f2”. So instead of manually entering every MAC address, you would enter the first “0004f2” and the router would recognize this sequence of MAC addresses.
I understand that the reason for this request is something that doesn’t typically happen but it does happen. Its not like people are going to start to ease up on finding ways to screw things up and make life harder than it needs to be.
