8.2 - Filter Quake during certain hours

For 8.2 I did policy (ficticious number), with a conform and exceed
action of drop.  It does the same thing as what's there, just a little
more messy.

One thing I was wondering is there some relevance on
how the time works on why to use 11:59 instead of 12:00?  Or is this not
important and either is correct?

time-range WORK_HOURS
periodic weekdays 9:00 to 11:59
periodic weekdays 13:00 to 16:59

 

 

Note:  It would be helpful to specify if the 27960 port was a source of destination port.  Unsure, I did both.

    Yes there is a difference an hour runs from 0 minutes to 59 so 12:00 would mean that your policy would be active until 12:00 and 59 seconds (until 12:01).  So this could cause you to loose points!

  • Quake should never be filtered as it's the best game that has been done ;) (Quakeworld).

    I whonder how many network guys here has a background in gaming.

    I never got beyond Doom - I prefer turn based games now - but then the Internet wasn't widespread 25 years ago when I was a young pup.
