    Hi,

    I'd like to connect my Switch to my LAN so that I can enable FTP access to it from my PC. I only want LAN access (plus maybe some select online addresses), so I'm going to block all internet access from the Switch using my router's firewall ACL rules. The trouble is that I can't save a networking configuration on the Switch because it fails the Internet Connection test.

    Does anybody know exactly what it does in this test (e.g. "It pings 8.8.8.8" or "it connects to https://ninty123.com/test.php")? If I knew that I could allow it to access only that one thing to get the config saved and then be happy it won't talk to anything else. I don't trust DNS solutions - I want to create a set of explicit outbound-allow rules.

    Presumably one of you already has the knowledge and could skool me? :teach:

    Thanks.
