you can either create a LAN > WAN rule on the sonicwall under firewall > access rules to block by IP or by MAC address.  if you do by IP, then you'll want to set them as static IP or DHCP reservation on your DHCP server.  i'd think it would be easier to do it by MAC.  create an address object under Network > Address Objects for the LAN zone and choose MAC as the type.  then, create the firewall rule choosing the new address object as the source and ANY for destination and service.  if you have more than one, then you should create a address group then an address object for each device.  add the objects to the group and use the group in the firewall rule as the source.

You should first create a Group, and add all the MAC addresses of the PCs to this Group.

You should then create a Group and add all the ports / services you want to block: ie: HTTP Port80, Https, FTP, Telnet, etc..

Then create a firewall rule  LAN > WAN that will block  the groups that you have just created.

If you have an active subscription service, you can enable Application Firewall, which will do the same thing for you.

the author indicated the solution is not clear. after reviewing, i see that a combination of my solution, http:#a34952994, and theonlyallan's solution, http:#a34953032, provides all the steps necessary to do what the author's is trying to accomplish.

my recommendation is to select those two solutions as the new disposition for this question. otherwise, Deleted.
