Blocking iOS and Android

Hi Guys, I want to prevent iOS and Android devices from accessing the internet via a specific VLAN. So the idea is any traffic originating from a specific VLAN on my network and successful access HTTPS and DNS can only be a Windows device. I know I can add an alias for Mobile device, iOS or Android but I am trying to work out how traffic from a specific network, using a specific device type destined for a specific network be dropped. Has anyone ever done this and if so I woudl love to hear how you did it. Thanks - Bob

    Hi @Bob_Murray

    The aliases for Android and iOS on the firewall are for a deprecated feature called mobile security. It used an app on the phone that had to be installed to grant access. Those two aliases won't do anything without that feature.

    The firewall will simply see an IPv4 or IPv6 client.

    I would suggest simply not supplying the password(s) for the SSIDs you don't want those devices connecting to.
