    Default HIPS Rules


      We are testing McAfee HIPS stand alone (sans ePO) and need to change or delete one of the default rules that is blocking Incoming netbios-ssn (port 139) and ms-ds (port 445) needed for IP360 (ncircle). Can this be done or are we forced to use ePO console.

          The Host IPS product must be managed by an ePO server, however, you can change the default rules before an ePO policy is applied.

            Thanks Kary - that was useful information that we will probably need in the future. Having read that KB, its obvious that I cannot do what I want (make a temporary change to the rules (default and learned) locally on my Workstation) without the ePO server.
