Best way to disable VPN access by schedule

What is the best way to disable all inbound access through VPN say for a period of Midnight to 8am.

 

I tried to setting a schedule and a firewall rule, but it blocks all traffic including LAN. I just need to block incoming VPN connections for a time period while allowing normal operation over the LAN.

 

Any suggested solutions will be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

@SYSguy,

 

The Schedule you are pertaining to as described in the images posted is for the LAN WAN Inbound Rule and its not for VPN access.

@SYSguy,

 

As far as I've checked the SRX5308 user manual here, there is no option to disable (by schedule) all inbound access through VPN.

Dane, Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm stuck supporting this old box but thought I had a way. I tried the following,

but ended up blocking all traffic.

 

On Page 190 you can create schedules, see attached.

On Page 151 you can create rules, and specify a schedule, see attached.

 

Sure seems like there is a way.

 

As always, I appreciate your help.

Well, adding pictures didn't work.

 

Maybe this?

Dane,

Thanks for taking the time to help.

I was hoping these rules applied to all WAN access, including VPN.

Oh well, helps my argument for the owner to upgrade, at last!

Thanks again, appreciate it.
