ENS Linux Firewall blocking ssh on installation even with fwoff option used
managed endpoint: RHEL 6.10 VM w/ Linux Agent 188.8.131.52 and ENSL Threat Prevention 10.7.3.46
I tried Run Client Task now -> Agent -> Product Deployment -> ENSL Firewall 10.7.3.25 with Command line: fwoff (per KB91310). The product installed and ePO showed the firewall status as Disabled, but an ssh session I had active at the time, stopped. In addition, I could not ping nor reconnect to the endpoint via ssh. Ugly workaround was to log into the VM's console and restart the firewall (mfefwd-control.sh restart).
How can I avoid the disruption of connectivity to an endpoint when deploying ENSL FW?
