Dear all, could you please help me with the next question I have USG FLEX 100 V5.20(ABUH.0), configured GEO_BLOCK deny policy (priority 2) from WAN to any (Excluding ZyWALL) for sources IP including China. (action - deny, log - no)


but in the log I see:




This is why I assume my policy doesn't work properly.  Why the rule id "from WAN to ANY" has priority 1 and how to change this?  Any idea how to solve the issue?

Thank you in advance

    Kolomeyets,
    You also need to add from WAN to ZyWALL rules, to deny access to ports of USG FLEX itself.

    Hello @Kolomeyets, IMVHO... the problem seems just... the logging.
    Rule #1 and #2 say "if it's coming from GEO_BLOCK" then "deny connection" and "don't log it".
    Well... seems from the log that access is blocked; Rule #1 for "all but USG", rule #2 "USG". Issue seems that it's logged anyway.

    Maybe a little bug on logging options by zyxel?
    Moreover: is any policy with "log alert" or "log" enabled?

    I have plenty of policies with log enabled, but as a matter of fact, you may see in the screen upper the cause rule id 1 "from WAN to Any", and unfortunately I don't have any clue how to manage it.

    You could try to change the setting from "no" to "Log alert" and see if the rule #1 triggers alerts...
