I have a firewall rule to block access to certain vif’s on my network unless the source IP is in the network-group. It works just fine from my PC. However, when trying to access from my cell, I can’t get in.
Running whatismyip.com on my cell phone gives me an IPv6 address. If I ssh into one of my linux devices from my phone, it shows the following address as connected:
USER TTY FROM LOGIN@ IDLE JCPU PCPU WHAT
xxxxx pts/0 146.sub-70-193-2 06:00 4.00s 0.05s 0.05s -bash
A search on ARIN shows that 188.8.131.52 belongs to Verizon (my mobile carrier), yet adding this address to the appropriate network-group doesn’t work. I don’t get any hits on that rule.
