Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.1

Starting to play around with IPv6 and it all works so fare very well... although I'm curious if I can find somewhere in the controller settings to adjust/manage firewall rules for IPv6.

 

Currently ports and services are exposed to the Internet via IPv6, of course I can do host based firewalls, but preferably do it on the router for the whole LAN.

 

To decrease the attack surface, I currently disabled IPv6 and enable it only when I play around with it.

Dear @paderijk, @add1n1, @anzenketh, and other community members,

 

Thank you so much for showing your great attention to the IPv6 Firewall rules on the Omada Routers!

 

It's confirmed that IPv6 Firewall rule is planned to be supported in the firmware adapted to Omada Controller v5.9, which can be expected to release in the end of December.  So stay tuned!

 

Note: the release time mentioned here is for your reference only, it's subject to the actual firmware condition.

I asked a similar question a few weeks ago. No response yet. Hopefully they will have something soon or tell us it isn't coming and we can look at alternative gateway devices. Personally I really like the Omada system. Just need some higher end options for gateway devices. Devices with more VPN throughput, Wireguard support, IPv6 Support, and Stateful Firewall rules both WAN to LAN and LAN to LAN. Later they could even offer more options with IDS/IPS, DNS filtering, Web Content Filtering, etc.

This has been forwarded to the developer team for further evaluation.

 

As far as I know, it's planned to be added gradually in the near future (it's only for reference).

@Fae Thanks, there is definitely demand for this feature. I asked a similar question before that went unanswered, so it is good to know the request has at least been recorded.

 

Without this a transparent firewall is needed, or more likely a non-Omada router instead. It is a pretty basic feature that is very important. I, too, have simply disabled IPv6 for the time being. At a bare minimum there needs to be an ability with SLAAC to block all new incoming requests.

@Fae  - Any updates on this subject? My ISP is pushing more and more IPv6 (IPv4 is still available), but I really would like to make my network future ready.

Sorry that I haven't received any update yet. But I know that the IPv6 firewall will be added in the subsequent updates.

I am also curious about this. I understand that some features might be released over time, but to offer IPV6 with no ability to protect the devices behind it seems a pretty significant gap that it should be a high priority to address.

  @markab You're right. it is in no case recommended to use the router with IPv6, because you are more or less unprotected!
