I just created my first scheduled firewall rule and its not working as expected. Maybe I did something wrong? Surf SOHO MK3 firmware 7.1.2.
I have a NAS that makes off-site backups between 9PM and 9:30PM every day.
At other times, I want it blocked from connecting to the Internet. This as a defense against malware on the NAS sending all my files to bad guys.
First, I created a schedule, shown here that is on at all times, except for the half hour every day when the NAS makes the off-site backup.
Then, I created a new outbound firewall rule shown here that blocks the NAS and assigned the rule to the schedule. The firewall rule is on top of all others.
The problem is that the firewall rule blocked the NAS even between 9 and 9:30PM.
I tested outside this normal backup window and the NAS was blocked, as expected. I disabled the firewall rule and the backup ran fine, outside the allowed window. Anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance.
