Re: what does it mean: "IP Address Type [Trusted]"

Local/Remote Networks with type [TRUSTED] refers to IP address listed in the Trusted Networks policy.  This is an older way to specify a list of IPS from HIPS 7.0; HIPS 8 allows you to list multiple IP addresses/ranges, etc. in the Firewall Rule now.

I'm on HIPS version 8. so do I need to Trusted Network and type all my ip ranges or leave it blank?

Ops! I think I left out some information.

I guess my question is, if my machine is in network, does HIPS consireded it as Trusted and I no longer need to put ip-ranges in "Trusted Network" under General rule.

please advise.

No, it's not automatically trusted; for HIPS 8 Firewall rules, Trusted Network policy is a leftover HIPS 7 feature that really isn't needed anymore.  In the HIPS 8 Firewall Rule, just add IP address/ranges/etc. to the rule; no need to utilize the [TRUSTED] object and Trusted Networks policy.
