Use the "Medium (standard)" level.

2. Find Telldus NET MAC address in ARP table.

In this example it's on line Index8, "Unknown device". Verify that the MAC address in the list matches the one on the sticker on TellStick Net. Copy this MAC address.

3. Open Security / MAC filtering

After installing Endian firewall, I also got a problem with my Tellstick Net. My Znet has status online, but Net is offline. Znet is probably communicating on a more default port...?

Looks like it's trying to communicate to different servers on different ports in my firewall log... OUTGOINGFW TCP (br0) -> (eth0) OUTGOINGFW TCP (br0) -> (eth0)

So I just made a any-rule for outgoing communication on the Telldus Net, and now it's working :-)

Is the communication for Tellstick documented anywhere?
