Hi Matthew,

Thanks, yeah I had found that post. I guess it's not really of much help
though. Why is it wrong and what is a valid alternative? Seems as though
the dynamic clients module is a bit "cut off at the knees" in a public wifi
service provider scenario if all it can access is the src IP address.

One alternative is to set the dynamic network to all of the internet so the
nas devices don't get blocked and then handle rejections later in the
normal policies, but seems like wasted resources to have to process them
that far in when they could just be dropped here if they aren't registered
devices that could be checked by comparing other fields like nas name or
mac etc.
