Can't connect to WiFi if only one IP is allowed in firewall settings

Hello,

 

I am using IAP-205 access points to create a wireless network for VoIP communication.

 

I would like to block the general internet access from all the devices connected to WIFi and allow access only to one public IP address (our VoIP server), let say 74.454.464.223.

 

However, if I put the only rule "Allow any to 74.454.464.223" in the Instant UI's settings, the devices can not connect to the wireless network anymore.

I can see the smartphone starts authenticaticating, then disconnects, then tries to connect again...

 

How could I solve this?

Aré you allowing DHCP, DNS ?

No, I guess I don't! 

I have only set the rule "Allow any" to the public IP of my server.

I see what you mean, I guess I shall add "allow any" to the IP of my DHCP router, correct? (this might be a stupid question, but I am not a network engineer unfortunately)

Re: Can't connect to WiFi if only one IP is allowed in firewall settings

Just add two rules to allow DNS and DHCP to either any server or to an specific server that provides these services in your network

Thank you
