Hallo James,

I really experimented with all kinds of things: changed the OPT1 to (to be much different from the LAN).

I also created aliasses in "Firewall" and threw those in, I also
explictly blocked traffic to LAN by spelling it out as

Nothing worked so far, LAN can be successfully prevented to reach
OPT1, but vice versa seems to be impossible.

Doesn't work either, I found out some more: as long as there is NO
rule on the OPT1 interface, traffic from OPT1 can go nowhere. The
second I put in ANY rule, LAN can be accessed from OPT1.

I put in this as the _only_ rule on OPT1:

Action: Block
Interf: OPT1
Protoc: any
Source: OPT1 subnet
Destin: any
Log packets that are handled by this rule

Now in theory, this should prevent ANY traffic to ANYWHERE and each
packet should be logged, right?

Wrong. Nothing is logged, with this one, single rule I can still "ping",
"net view" and "" from OPT1. I can even FTP my
internal OpenBSD server from OPT1, aaaargh! However I must use
IP-addresses, DNS-resolution does not work.

>Second reaction - wasn't it working yesterday?

That was a mistake of mine: I had the Captive Portal activated, which
prevented any traffic. With Captive Portal deactivated: see above.

Kind regards   Frederick
