I have set my router to sleep after an idle of 3 mins and wake on pattern match,
the above allow a transparent on and off for convenience as well power saving.
However, as you may know, there are many annoying crawler on the web.
For ftp, I forward the request from WAN side to my server in LAN by NAT.
On observing, I spot an IP frequently disturb my server, that way I tried to block it by setting up a rule.
However, it never worked, the IP can still sexually harass my server as he likes.
Any idea? Or my setting is wrong?
Update : On more search, I find that the order of the firewall rules may matter.
Previously the blocking rule was at the end of the Firewall Rule Listing.
Just now I move all allowing rule to the end of the rule list, see if this would help.
