Re: ZyWall USG 20W - Block Wireless Administration

Create appropriate firewall rules to block/allow access to ZyWall as you desire.

Thanks Brano... but how do I single out the interface?

I tried the rule BLOCK from WLAN_1-1 to (object) ZyWall (192.168.1.1) and this made all wifi traffic not work.

Also, if this had worked properly I would have to make seperate objects for 10.59.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 with my default out-of-box config (2 lans enabled).

So the problems are
1. My firewall rule didn't work
2. It would require 3 rules for 3 objects by default? It seems like there should be an obvious, easy way to keep people out of this area.

Sorry Brano, I forgot to mention that also I tried changing the default firewall rule for WLAN to ZYWall to block or reject and that also keeps wifi users off the admin area but also stops all internet browsing....

I want to allow WLAN to WAN... but Block WLAN to ZyWall.

I guess I could try to block the website 192.168.1.1, 192.168.2.1, 10.59.1.1? I just thought there might be a simple way.

Anyways thanks again for replying!

It stops internet browsing because you block all services!
You need to leave enabled DHCP and DNS for WLAN to hit the ZyWall.

I think this issue is resolved. Thanks to both Anav and Brano.
