I have used NetworkManager to create a WiFi hotspot. This seems to be working well, however I don't want to share the internet connection (from ethernet) on the WiFi access point. I want only local stuff to be accessible when connected to the WiFi access point, none of the traffic should go out on the ethernet. How can I solve this?

This is my configuration file for the NetworkManager hotspot:

[connection]
id=WIFI_AP
uuid=7a9f1d30-0c38-4aad-9084-b55539553214
type=wifi
interface-name=wlan0
permissions=

[wifi]
band=bg
channel=1
mac-address-blacklist=
mode=ap
ssid=test_ap

[wifi-security]
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
psk=11223344

[ipv4]
address1=192.168.5.1/24
dns-search=
method=shared

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
dns-search=
method=auto
