Firewall alias question

Hi,

 

I need to create a rule for outgoing traffic where remote host is *local* ip address of the workstation itself (yeah, great design by Veeam .. ). The ip address is acquired from DHCP server.

 

How can I do that? It seems that I cannot use "localhost" or "127.0.0.1". Best solution I came up so far, is to use our dhcp range, but that's far from perfect.

Also, I'd like to set my own aliases on FSPMC. Is this supported? For example [backupserver2] 192.168.1.20 ?

This would come very handy, when you need to replace a server, and dont want to go through tens of rules, but simply change the IP on alias.

Hello hyvokar,

 

Aliases are not supported in current PMC UI.

 

Best regards,
