Outbound firewall rule

I want to block outbound access to a specific IP address and port but I don’t see this option on the router. Is there a way to create outbound firewall rule?

Outbound rules can be set up under ADVANCED > Security > Block Services.

Not really what lm looking for.

Here is an example: I want to block outbound DNS to 8.8.8.8 from ANY.

The service block feature will block all DNS and won’t let me limit to specific destination IPs.

For that level of control you'd need to put Orbi in AP mode behind another router.

Yeah, the Orbi doesn't have the ability to do that.
