    Firewall Log


      I'm having some issues with my firewall rules. For testing purposes i've been trying to block pinging to a specific host, i put the rule at the top of one policy A going to machine A and it blocks the ping, but with a different policy (B going to machine B) it does not block ping. So i've cloned the working policy (policy A) and applied it to machine B and it blocks ping, but when i change some of the allowed rules it stops blocking, if i undo the changes, it still doesnt want to block pings. Are there any logs that can help troubleshoot this?

          In the HIPS Client UI (run McAfeeFire.exe or open via the tray icon menu), and go to the Activity Log tab.  Enable the LOG ALL BLOCKED/ALLOWED and TRAFFIC filter options.


          Review what firewall rules are allowing/blocking the ICMP traffic incorrectly.  Adjust the rules accordingly.

            Interesting.... I tried that on the machine but didnt get anything, but i tried it on the working machine and got the blocked and allowed traffic. Sounds like i have a bigger issue than i thought.
