I got this working. Updated my HiveAP OS to 6.1r1 and the app signature. Also got some issue with my FW rule order list.

I have a similar problem. Could someone assist me, please? I've set up a wireless network for guests and want attached policy working.

I only want to allow stated services, but it doesn't work, so for example I am allowed to start a FTP session.

What I am doing wrong?

One issue may be that you are only applying network service rules, and not application service rules, in your IP policy. For example, FTP appears in the L7 signatures as three application services and one network service:



What is interesting is that the IP firewall policy default action should be catching the FTP requests and dropping them.

Thank you, applying of additional application service rules did the trick.
