Hi Pascal, Thanks for the reply.


So would the following rule work?


FirewallRule allow tcp port 28910,29900,29901,29920,80,443  to

I do now know exactly how wifidog process its firewall rules, but lets say it simply craft netfilters rules and pass them to iptables. 

It this case, you don't have any choices other than specifying the range since the domain-name will be resolved only to one of those addresses and your rule won't match that often.

Once again, i do not know for wifidog, but I know that iptables does work with CIDR mask (example :

I know about
wser and the simplest way seems to be 2-Whitelist specific servers

Given the fact that these all have hostnames, can firewall rules contain

If not, can you white list IP Ranges and corresponding ports?

So for example, the servers I would like to white list are as follows:

Contest.nintendo.net - to
Contest.nintendo.net - to
nas.nintendowifi.net - to
gs.nintendowifi.net - to
nus.shop.wii.com - to
rcw.wc24.wii.com - to
cfh.wapp.wii.com - to
weather.wapp.wii.com A - to
weather.wapp.wii.com B - to
opera.com - to
american-sk8land.com - to

So would the corresponding firewall rules in wifidog.conf work?:

FirewallRule allow tcp port 28910, 29900,29901,29920,80,443  to


FirewallRule allow tcp port 28910, 29900,29901,29920,80,443  to

It has also been recommended to allow all udp traffic, would this be a
security risk?
