I have a machine that is not reachable from my EPO but that needs firewall protection. I can install the HIPS firewall on it - is there a way to export the firewall ruleset policy from the EPO or from a managed machine so that it can be imported to the unmanaged machine and I don't have to build the ruleset by hand?
I think I have seen another thread that said the HIPS firewall rules are contained in the registry on managed machines (rather than a config file of some kind)- could I back up that registry key from a managed machine and restore it to the unmanaged machine? Can anyone tell me where in the registry the rules are located?
It is not possible to import the Firewall rules locally to a system. The HIPS configuration must be enforced by the McAfee Agent (and ePO server) as HIPS is an ePO-managed product only (it is not a standalone product). Registry dumps will not work either.
