ENS Firewall (Block all) rule

Jump to solution

Dear McAfee, 

 

We have noticed that the "Block all" rule in "Firewall rules" no longer is available. 

Before it was available "in red text" on the the bottom of all. 

Is this by default or have you made some changes that we might have missed? 

 

See attached screenshot.

Hi @th3stinger The default BLOCK ALL TRAFFIC rule does not exist in the Firewall Rule policy on the ePO server side; you can have a custom BLOCK ALL rule though (which is probably what you saw before; not suggested because this can negate the ability to use the Firewall Adaptive mode functionality, if desired).

The default BLOCK ALL TRAFFIC rule is seen on the client side though (it's a hard-coded client-side rule.  See attached.

Also, FYI, be aware that if you enable the Firewall Adaptive mode feature in the ENS product, this default BLOCK ALL TRAFFIC rule changes to an "allow all" rule named "ADAPTIVE RULE".
