Issue/Introduction

When setting up Network Rules in a policy, in the Remote IP field there are some options that require some explanation as to what they do.

Resolution

Here is an explanation of what these resource options are:

  • Local IPv4 addresses - Uses the IPv4 Address(s) assigned to the computer the agent is installed on.
    For example: The computer has two Network Interface Cards (NIC) with the IP's of 192.168.0.52 and 10.167.28.251.  With Local IPv4 addresses selected for Remote IP the rule will monitor for both 192.168.0.50 and 10.167.28.251 for this rule.
  • Local IPs (v4 and v6) - This is the same as Local IPv4 but applies to any IP assigned to the computer regardless of whether it is IPv4 or IPv6.
  • Local IPv4 Subnet addresses - Uses the IPv4 addresses for the subnet the computer the agent is installed on.
    For example: The computer has the IP address of 192.168.0.50 with the subnet of 255.255.254.0 uses the IP range of 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.3.255.
  • Local Subnet addresses (v4 and v6) This is the same as Local IPv4 Subnet addresses but applies to the local subnet for both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.
  • SDCSS Server IP - Sets the Remote IP as the IP of the SDCSS Manager the agent is registered to.
  • Sandbox specific inbound hosts component - Uses the IP Addresses that are in the inbound hosts list within the same sandbox.
  • Global inbound hosts component - Uses the IP addresses that are in the inbound hosts list from the Global Options of the policy.
  • Sandbox specific outbound hosts componentUses the IP Addresses that are in the outbound hosts list within the same sandbox.
  • Global outbound hosts component - Uses the IP addresses that are in the outbound hosts list from the Global Options of the policy.
