Internet Block

I have a SonicWall TZ 215.  I'd like to know how to block a particular internal IP address from getting on the internet from Noon until 5pm.  It doesn't seem too hard but when I go to:

Security Services --> Content Filter --> Configure I notice that I have the tabs CFS & Consent.  I've read instructions that contain 2 additional tabs Policies & Custom List.

It seems as though I need those tabs to perform this operation.  How do I get them?  Or is there another way to do this?

content filter is a subscription service that you have to buy from sonicwall to filter web content based on criteria

to block a workstation from internet access you need to create an address object under network and either use the ip (should be static if using ip) or the mac address of the workstations

then add rule in firewall section from lan to wan, set to deny, service is any, source is your address object name that you created, destination is wan ip, select schedule that you want based on drop down choices

that should do it

I thought it would be relatively easy but not that easy.  Thank you for the solution!
