Restricting incoming access to a port to only some IP adresses R7000

Hi there.

I host a gameserver, but i have these unwanted incoming connections that takes a little time of the server, because it has to reject these login attempts.

I would like to make a rule that says: Incoming traffic on port 20000 is only accesible from IP adress that and IP adress that. That would take a workload of my server.

Is it possible to make this kind of restrictions?

Not with stock firmware. You can set up firewall rules on your server. Your server has a much faster CPU than the router, so it should not be too costly.
