Preventing Cams from Connecting to Websites

 I’ve got an old TZ210 running SonicOS Enhanced

I am very satisfied with the connection to web speed and I love the DHCP server options.

I do not use the licensed APPs

All I had learned is reading pages from the forum that I found it very instructive.

I do have some issues traying to block access to the web the IP cameras and DVR

I followed the advice for creating the rules from forum posts and Soniwall help pages.

It seems the rules I created do not prevent the cameras to communicate with websites (Manufactures or amazon servers)

The devices are

CAM 01 , CAM 02 and NVR

Created static address on DHCP respectively

Created address objects for each one of the devices

Created (Add) group object named Cams Network LAN using all the devices objects

 Crated the Metrix rules from LAN to WAN as follow Pic attached

 After creating the rules I rebooted the Firewall but still cameras showing connections to the web under connection monitor (Ip addresses are excluded) pls see pics

Any advice would be appreciated

    Hi @VILLALE,

    Thank you for visiting SonicWall Community.

    You were almost there in fixing the requirement.

    Please change the access rule with Destination to ANY from WAN Interface IP. WAN to LAN rule is not required in this case as we already deny all WAN to LAN traffics by default.

    Please try out and let me know.
