Hi from France. I have a very simple setup with one AP. On my policy, I have created 2 SSIDs, one for guests and one for internal usage. I want to use the traffic filter function on the guest SSID. So I have configured a new traffic filter where all the checkboxes are disabled, I have configured the guest SSID to use this traffic filter and then I have updated the AP. The device is connected to the guest SSID but I can still ping ressources and use P2P apps. What am I missing here ? Thanks for any idea ! Franck.

Did you create an IP firewall policy (Configuration -> Advanced Configuration -> Security Policies -> IP Firewall Policies) and apply it to the user profile? (Configuration -> User Profiles -> [Select the User Profile] -> Firewalls -> IP Firewall Policy).

Oh ok. I didn't understand the purpose of the "Enable Inter-station Traffic" checkbox. To block Torrents transfers, I had to go straight to an IP FireWall Policy applied to my guest user profile. I have done some tests and it seems to work ! Thanks Crowdie for the guidance.

The "Enable inter-station Traffic" traffic filter option is to enable/disable wireless clients being able to communicate with each other.  For the corporate WLAN you would allow stations (wireless clients) to communicate with each other while you may want to stop guests talking to each other.
