Even if you think it's a trivial system with no valuable data, it's still got computing power and can become part of a botnet. Some of the recent massive botnet attacks we've seen have come from security cameras, DVRs, and smart fridges, devices usually considered too unimportant by the average person to get a second thought about security.

OMARC and ISEC are already on pFsense firewalls,  I am building another unit for building 9059.  

Looking at the connection attempts to the Netgear 6100D (same Sprint platform as  Mobile Beacon) 60 percent of the inbound attempts are from non conus sources .

*None* are valid.   I am using the geoblock rule on the firewall to toss the traffic.

What we need to check if sprint allows inbound to the IP assigned to the router.
