    Default Region blocking not stopping EXTERNAL->WAN

    Assuming this is a misconfiguration on my end, but I have 2 rules set up to block regions:


    The server rule works fine; I actually found out one of my android tablets still had ES File Explorer installed on it which turned into Chinese malware back in 2017. However I still get IPS hits from external to my WAN address and the client rule is never flagged in my firewall report. Below is a signature hit from a Russian IPs as they showed up in my IPS report.


    I've found other Chinese and Russian IPs in my IPS logs too besides this one so I'm curious if I've configured something wrong or if this is expected behavior. Both rules are at the top of my firewall priority so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Connections to the External IP are blocked using access rules. /admin/
