Home Network Protection - Pausing Internet stops VPN bypass.... schedule does not.

Message 1 of 3

Can someone validate this for me?

 

If I use a profile in Home Network Protection to schedule internet access... the schedule shuts down internet through a proxy. My son can still use devices by using a VPN.

 

If I "Pause" internet on his profile. It is a full stop on internet activity. He cannot access the internet on these devices using a VPN.

 

Does it work this way for everyone else? This is a poor implementation. Since the scheduled option doesn't work, I have to manually pause his internet every night. It's tiresome. I'm thinking of buying different routers to make this work.

First of all, I recommend against using technological measures for parenting. Since your son knows about VPN, that's likely a coping mechanism developed from previously being blocked from the Internet.

 

How long would your son figure out to bypass the DNS or MAC-based blocking mechanism of the HNP?

Since the DNS-based blocking offered by the HNP is not working, I was going to ask you to try MAC-based access controls offered by the firewall. But, second thoughts make me want to type the above words.

Other users who have Fios and HNP will comment.

You only need to use their NAT router if:

 

#1 You have Fios TV One  (or Fios One TV - if I got the name wrong)

 

#2 You need support from Verizon.

 

-> Support will end at the ONT if you use your own NAT router.
