Block a game server by including an IP address range:

hello, I wish as the title indicates to block certain game server which generates horrible gaming experience .. how can I perform this task with my openwrt router .. I have tested this method according to photo below, however this does not not work according to wireshark analysis.

Source zone --> LAN
Source address: None (any)
Destination address:
Save and make sure it's the last rule
And by that you're not blocking "a game server" rather a complete netblock which is probably not what you want

This works because it prevents your LAN from talking to the associated net block.

The reason you can't do it the other way is that the firewall already allows the return traffic in an earlier rule before your custom rule.
