    Hi Damon,

     

    It's not available in the app yet, it's on our todo list, likely in a couple of months.

     

    The iptables rule will get overwritten when restarting Firewalla services. But you can add a cronjob (like every 5 minutes) to add an iptables rule to block facetime calls if not existing, so even it's overwritten, it will be automatically re-added very soon.

     

    Thanks,

    Melvin

    Hi, any update on this feature? It's way more productive to be able to whitelist ports (facetime for example) to be permitted or denied per device and source/dest as a regex expression (or domain). For a destination being a country/ISP I could permit facetime app to 185.16.*.* for example. Granular control (for those who know what they do). :)

    an iPAD app would make this WAY easier too. 

    Thanks,

    We are still working on it. Likely rebuild the foundation that we can support various kinds of blocking, not just port.

     

    In terms of iPad, it's more a UI design problem. We are also prototyping the Web and CLI interface, since iPadOS is coming, maybe using web interface on iPad could be an option.

     

    Thanks,
