I enjoy developing my knowledge of math and programming, and often try to come up with new coding projects I can work on.

I have experience with Java, C#, and Python when it comes to programming, but also have interests in some web development. Outside of programming desktop/web applications, I'm very interested in learning about electronics and how to program them.

I pretty much enjoy learning about anything that can get me started on cool new projects!

comment What is the best way to restrict network access for one machine on a home LAN?
Although I have selected ppumkin's answer as the correct one, Rich, your suggestion is similar and also valid. There's a good level of detail/discussion in the other answer, however, which could be useful for review to other visitors, so I've selected it as the answer for this question. Your answer has also been upvoted, though, and I thank you for your assistance! I'll let you know if I get around to flashing the E4200, although it may be some time before I am able to get around to it.

I think there was some confusion for ppumkin around what was meant by firewalls. We all meant the same thing, but just needed to clarify that we were purely talking about physical hardware for the firewalls and not something like Windows Firewall. I liked Rich's answer too as it was essentially a similar suggestion, but there's a good level of detail and discussion here so I've selected it as the answer.

Cool, thanks for the suggestion! That might be something to look into for future projects :)

Ah I see now, that makes sense. The clients from the first router have no visibility into anything connected to the second router. Still, I'm a little worried that traffic still has to pass from the second router back to the first, could it be guaranteed there's no way of the traffic being routed to one of the first router's hosts?

Hi ppumkin, for the above diagram, would the configuration be set up to allow traffic from the second router to the first, but not allow it if the destination was Machine A or Machine B? Edit - The pf suggestion from cpast and ppumpkin is something that is worth looking into, thanks!

From the sound of things, I will likely need an additional router to securely isolate Machine C.

It sounds like to ensure a secure isolation, I need an additional router in between the two networks.

That's correct, cpast, I'm thinking along the lines of a network-level firewall. I'm not sure if my poor home router can split into 2 subnets and blacklist all traffic from the subnet Machine A and Machine B reside on, but I think that would be a solution as long as Machine C can't administer the router.

My hope is that there's a way to stop Machine C from being able to administer the router. EDIT - Wouldn't a firewall rule that blacklists all traffic be equivalent to isolation, though?

Ah, gotcha, I had a feeling that the DMZ route wouldn't work for a typical home router. So in commercial DMZs is there a physical appliance that serves as the firewall? Just out of curiosity.
