Firewall Rules on Meraki

Hi Guys

I have a question about the Firewall rules on Meraki, I can see there are outbound rules, i.e from things on the LAN on the router going outbound.

How do we restrict things coming back in from the WAN from the VPN sites? 

Or is this not possible and it is based on Stateful connections from stuff going outbound only?

If so why is this ?

Its a statefull  firewall. All incoming traffic will be denied unless  you make nat rules.


For meraki autovpn tunnels you should use the site to site vpn firewall rules. They are also outbound rules so you have to block the traffic on the location where its sourced from

With AutoVPN firewall rules you can only control traffic leaving the site.  So if you want to block traffic coming into a site, you create a rule preventing it from leaving the other sites.
