Blocked Hosts > how do I whitelist


One of my IPs keeps getting blocked by McAfee HIPs.  I want to white list this and I have played with the "Firewall Policy" but anything I do does not seem to work (I continue to get blocked)

Here is what I have tried:

1. Select "Firewall Policy"

2.  Add

3. Name = Some name

4. Direction = Both

5. Action = Allow

6. Next

7. Network Protocol = any protocol

8.  Media types = all

9.  Local IP address and Remote IP Address = The IP address I do not want blocked

10. Finish

The result is I continue to get blocked.

Re: Blocked Hosts > how do I whitelist

Signature 3701 is triggering an Intrusion and blocking the IP.
