Hi, I’m using pfSense at home and would like to stop internet connection on my kids PC’s on a schedule. I’ve followed several forum posts and youtube videos and all say to add a firewall rule based on that schedule using the Action BLOCK with Source as my Kids PC ip’s (I’ve set up an Alias). Protocol is IP4 and I’ve selected LAN and WAN. Direction is IN, Quick is Checked and Gateway is WAN_DHCP Gateway. I’ve tried this as a LAN rule and the above is my current Floating Rule setting. However, neither seems to stop the internet access on time. So for example, if I set the schedule to stop at 8:00 pm, the kids are able to keep playing until 8:30 - 9:00 pm. And I know they still have internet access because they continue to voice chat with their online friends.
One thing to note is I am using pi-hole instead of phSense to block certain sites and so their pc’s point to the pi-hole ip address for DNS calls. But I have included the address of the pi-hole in the Alias above.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!
