Q: I was wondering if there were specific instructions on getting the P2P blocking feature to work? I am trying to block P2P to only some IP addresses on the network while allowing it to others.
A: The Vigor2820 has an object based firewall, so you can define different IPs to a group object, and define IM/P2P block group for different IP groups.
To create an IM/P2P rule, follow the steps:
1. Create an IM/P2P object in Objects Setting >> IM Object Profile.
2. Create a CSM profile in CSM >> IM/P2P Filter Profile
3. Select the profile in Firewall >> Filter setup.
Then you can block somebody from using some IM/P2P, and allow other people through.
