The Admin guide states under section ‘About Endpoint FlexResponse’

You can use Endpoint FlexResponse rules on the following types of endpoint
destinations and protocols:
■ Endpoint Discover
■ Hard drive monitoring
■ USB-connected devices
■ SMTP
■ HTTP(S)

After you have installed the Endpoint FlexResponse plug-in, you can add it as a
response rule action in your policy.

The endpoint FlexResponse is NOT supported on following DIM events:

1.      CD/DVD

3.      PRINT
4.      AFAC
5.      FTP
