Model: ER7206 (TL-ER7206)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.1

If we read what happened below, the idiot at the keyboard (me) put the ACL on gateway and not on the EAP.

 

This leads to my UI redesign suggestion.

 

In my extremely inexperienced view, if one is creating a traffic ACL rule,it should apply network wide.

 

My enhancement request is: instead of tabs to enter the rule 3 times, perhaps 3 check boxes (gateway, switch, EAP) on a single page would be more effective. All should be checked by default. This way if the admin wished to disable the ACL on any of the device classes it's a simple matter of unchecking a box.

 

@Fae Kindly consider but others may feel differently.

I've created the following rule:

 

 

I am able to http from IOT Net to CoreNet so this does not seem to work.

 

Any help is appreciated.

@HomeAdmin 

 

I have never seen this done by IP Group before, usually I set this use using VLANs and blocking between them.  Its much easier

 

In this case it blocks my IOT devices from all other networks via a Switch ACL

Thanks for the reply.

 

The groups each contain 1 VLAN.

 

I am not using a TL116E so the VLANs are defined using the switch UI.

 

The ACL I post is in the EAP and Gateway.

 

Will test again using the VLAN and not the groups and see if that makes a difference.

 

I believe my suggestion still holds to simplify deployment of rules.

@HomeAdmin 

 

That may well be where the shortfall is

 

LIke Ubiquiti / Unifi the SDN is a closed ecosystem and therefore non SDN hardware will not work "as intended", hopefully you get sorted ok!
