We have just purchased 5 x RUT955 for testing before replacing 90+ "other" routers on our vessels.
We are having an issue with locking down by MAC address.
Router is configured and internet access is fine. We then add IPTables to allow certain MAC addresses through to internet.
Once configured, we reboot the router, and the devices can access the internet for anywhere between 15 mins to an hour, then all of sudden reports "no internet access"
If we factory reset the router, reconfigure and leave out the rules, its fine. Its only when we add the IPTable rules (See below). We have updated the firmware to the latest release as published on the site, but this has not made any difference.
The rules being pushed are:
iptables -I INPUT -s 192.168.1.0/24 -j DROP ; iptables -I INPUT -m mac --mac-source E8:6A:64:0E:AE:67 -j ACCEPT ; iptables -I INPUT -m mac --mac-source 54:E1:AD:A4:C4:45 -j ACCEPT ; iptables -I INPUT -m mac --mac-source D9:56:82:FF:H6:H7 -j ACCEPT
Any advice would be appreciated as the guys are pulling their hair out with this one.
