Hello I was wondering if it i possible to block a guest vm from accessing the router page or going to it Like or I have tired to look at the wiki firewall page and online but I'm so confused. I'm not a programming at all Just learning I just need to know the steps on how to do this. Well the guest vm can access the internet and everything else. Just won't be able to access the router page.

Yes, using the firewall is the way to go. Have you started to read the docs? There are also videos available on YouTube, maybe that helps too.

In general, you only need one rule to prohibit the access to your router webinterface (you cannot block all traffic to the router if you want to have internet).
