HIPS 7/8 firewall rule limit

Jump to solution

What is the limit for firewall rules?

From your experience when should we expect performance to be affected?

Is there a way to import a list of IPs into a firewall rule (as opposed to single IP and range)?

Any information/lessons learned will be useful

There is no set limit.

This would depend on many variable factors, so there is no set expections, however, you should create the firewall rules in an optimized method.  Group up firewall rules were possible (HIPS 8 allows you to specify multiple objects, like IP addresses, applications, etc. in a single firewall rule; HIPS 7.0 does not).

There is no import functionality for this.
