How to Identify Routerboard for Firewall Rules ?

Fri Feb 29, 2008 2:26 pm

Hi Folks,

is there a direct way to identify the Firewall itself in the rules we could use ?
Or will I have to generate an address list with all local IP-Addresses - to be able to use the firewall ?

Greetings!

It is the "input" chain rules that apply to the RouterBoard (firewall) as you call it. Those are the routes into the OS. "Output" controls outbound requests, and "forward" controls the throughput.
