Create an IPv6 Access Rule

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Rules.
  2. Click Lock.
  3. Either click the +v6 icon at the top right of the ruleset, or right-click the ruleset and select New > IPv6 Rule.
  4. Select Block, Deny or Pass as the action.
  5. Enter a name for the rule.
  6. Specify the following settings that must be matched by the traffic to be handled by the access rule:
    • Source – The source addresses of the traffic.
    • Destination – The destination addresses of the traffic.
    • Service – Select a service object, or select Any for this rule to match for all services.
  7. Click OK.
