I want to analyze data about single workstation activity.

Is there any way for workstation in network identification with dynamic ip assignment from dhcp server.

Is there MAC/User or HOSTNAME/MAC binding option and identify traffic for this kind of records?

    Hi @Przemek

    You can use DHCP static MAC binding on USG, Workstation will get the same IP address from DHCP server every time.

    In this way, all the traffic/log/activity from this IP can be identified for analyzing.

    DHCP static binding at “CONFIGURATION > Network > Interface > Ethernet DHCP Setting > “Static DHCP Table””

    Hi Zyxel_Cooldia

    I have some external locations with different subnets with local dynamic DHCP servers connected as internal network with me by external VPN and all Internet is provided by Zywall in my location. What will happen if I turn on "Enable IP/MAC Binding" ? Will it block access for all addresess with wrong IP/MAC pair or without records in STATIC DHCP table?

    Hi @Przemek ,

    It would not block the traffic without records in STATIC DHCP table.

    Enable this option to have this interface enforce links between specific IP addresses and specific MAC addresses.
