WE use a number of RUT variations including Rut240,950 and RUTX12, Is it possible to schedule the mobile data connections to only be active during certain times IE: 7am to 10pm? Ideally configurable via the web GUI.

Many Thanks

To schedule tasks you will need to use crontab functionality, which is configurable via command line.

For detailed description and instructions on how to set up crontabs, please refer to this page. 

The crontabs should look like this:

  • 0 7 * * * /etc/init.d/gsmd enable >/dev/null 2>&1
  • 0 22 * * * /etc/init.d/gsmd disable >/dev/null 2>&1

Best regards,

Thankyou very much for the quick responce and I understand that.

To expand on this would it be possible to restrict access to mobile data to certain LAN IP address's at certain times? so no access to mobile data from between 22.00 to 07.00

You can configure a traffic rule in the firewall settings to drop packets originating from specified IP addresses for a defined period.

Please refer to this page to see if the feature is sufficient for your application.
