Use Peplink’s Firewall Feature to Block Netflix


As of firmware 6.3 Peplink Routers can block traffic from specific applications.

To begin navigate to Network > Firewall > Content Blocking (For MAX Devices: Advanced > Content Blocking).

Add the following customized rules to the customized domains:

  • nflximg.*
  • netflix.*

Don’t forget to Save and Apply the changes and devices on your network won’t be able to view any Netflix content.

Note: Make sure you flush your dns settings between testing changes to avoid loading websites that have been cached already!

If you want to block entire categories of websites (e.g. media streaming, adverts), read about our list-based web-blocking feature.
