    Default Allow remote access based solely on MAC address?

    Greetings:

    I own and am using ZA Security Suite 9.3.037.009. I am trying to set a rule to allow remote access from a laptop to my source PC based only on the remote's laptop's MAC address.

    In expert rules, using "gateway" requires both an IP AND a MAC Address.

    Since I am roaming from hotspot to hotspot in my travels and never know what my IP is going to be, I am looking for a workaround.

    Thanks.

    I am not aware of an option for that. You could try to contact the official ZA technical support at the link in my signature and see if they know a workaround (if any). Please post back here if you find a solution to it. It may help other users with your same problem.

    Thanks,

    I gave your suggestion a shot, Fax, but didn't get much help. After a long wait ...

    I would think that many people would want to remote access into their home systems from the road. Maybe I'm using the wrong firewall product?

    Sorry to hear support could not help. Some personal info + offtopic comments needed to go, are against forum terms of use.
    I am afraid you may need to look for another product unless other users here have some ideas on how to configure ZA to do what you aim to.

    Sorry again and good luck!
