I want to create a Lan network which is restricted and no internet connection.
I want to be able to connect PC's to this LAN and to be able to activate Windows - 7/10/2008/2012/2016...
I created a new vlan on firewall and grant access to list below as I found on the net..


go.microsoft.com/
login.live.com
activation.sls.microsoft.com/
validation.sls.microsoft.com/
activation-v2.sls.microsoft.com/
validation-v2.sls.microsoft.com/
displaycatalog.mp.microsoft.com/
licensing.mp.microsoft.com/
purchase.mp.microsoft.com/
displaycatalog.md.mp.microsoft.com/
licensing.md.mp.microsoft.com/
purchase.md.mp.microsoft.com/

Still - Im getting error on windows - "activation servers are unavailable"...
I can see in firewall DNS is resolved.
I have ping to most of these addresses ...

What am I missing ?
