Kid Control IP Addresses

Mon Oct 11, 2021 12:43 am

Hi.

Most of my kids devices were assigned dynamic ip addresses when I enabled kid control. I noticed that everytime one of my kids devices grabs a new ip address, it appends it to the kid control ip address list for that device. So now when the control is activated for that device, the firewall apparently creates a massive list of rules for all the addresses that device has grabbed. To mitigate this, I have since assigned static ip addresses for that device, however, I don't know how to reset the kid control ip addresses so that it doesn't continue to create huge lists of firewall rules. Is there a way to reset it?

I have the same problem. The ARP cache is correct, but the old IP addresses persist in the device list. If I delete the static device, the dynamic one returns retaining the same IP address list as before.

Something I never experienced...what is your TTL? And why is it grabbing a new IP address? Are the previous used IP addresses assigned to another device?
First the problem, then the solution

I thought this had survived a reboot previously, but after my last reboot the addresses cleared. A manual way to clear would be a good idea.

I initially saw the problem after changing some static addresses. Subsequently it appeared on transient devices that grabbed a new address when returning to my network.
