RBS850 - Helium Miner - Making sure Armor does not block traffic going to the IP

Hi, 

 

I'm mining Helium on my home network and have set up Armor on my Orbi. I want to make sure no traffic going to the miner's IP are being blocked by Armor. 

 

Is there a way to make sure this does not happen? I.e. make all traffic going to 192.168.1.xxx be exempt from any Armor watchdog. 

 

Thank you

You could put the miner in the orbi's DMZ. Not the most secure option but it would forwards all traffic. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Is there a way to see if Armor is blocking any traffic for this specific IP? Might not even be a problem, I just want to be sure
