Backing up HIPS Firewall Rules?


How can I backup all the Firewall Rules list so that when I install HIPS again, I dont have to re-create the rules all over again?

Is there like a file for this under Program Files in Windows?

Re: Backing up HIPS Firewall Rules?

You cannot backup the rules on the local system, but since the firewall rules are managed by the ePO server, you can export your Firewall rule policy from the ePO console Policy Catalog to XML format, to reimport them into the ePO server.

In fact, since ePO manages the policy, the McAfee Agent would download the firewall rules from the ePO server and reapply them after a reinstall.
