Hello,

I have a Xiaomi Mi (Aqara) Gateway.

For network security reasons, I moved it to a subnet without Internet access and now I'm having all sorts of problems.

I don't mind to give it access for sporadic firmware updates. But I don't want it to be constantly communicating to the an external server.

Thanks in advance,
Nuno
