Managing Firewall Access Policy from the Security Management Portal Technical Level

Note: 1500 appliances do not support this feature.


The Security Management Portal (SMP) supports managing the Firewall Access Policy (Rule Base) for:

  • Small and Medium Business Appliances (600 and 700)
  • Branch Office Appliances (1100, 1400)
  • Ruggedized Appliances (1200R)

On the Security Software Blades -> Access Policy page, SMP administrator can create rules for a specified plan or gateway. These rules will set policy for:

  • Outgoing access to the Internet
  • Incoming, internal and VPN traffic

SMP administrator can configure pre-local rules or post-local rules:

  • Pre-local rules run before the local manual rules (which are created in the local settings of the Firewall Software Blades). A gateway local administrator cannot create manual rules to override pre-local rules configured by the SMP administrator.

  • Post-local rules run after the local manual rules. The SMP administrator configures recommended policy, and the local administrator can override it by creating manual rules.

Note: The gateway local administrator can only edit the manual rules. Pre/post-local rules are locked.

For more information about this feature, refer to SMP R12.30 Administration Guide.



This feature is available on SMB gateways starting in R77.20.70.
