How often does HIPS check which nic is active?

Jump to solution

Hello all, I'm hoping you can answer my question. I have a CAG firewall rules policy under which one sub-ruleset applies to a wired network and the other sub-ruleset applies to wireless connections. My question is, when and/or how often does HIPS check which nic is active? Is it possible that I could shut off a client while connected wirelessly (thus having the wireless portion of the CAG fw policy apply); power back it back on while connected via ethernet but HIPS would "forget" to check which medium was active (wired/wireless) and thus still apply the wireless CAG fw policy? Perhaps there's some flag it forgets to set to indicate which type of connection is being used?

Thank You
