V14 firewall questions

Hi, 

 

Some questions concerning V14 firewall.

 

I understand rules has no processing order, all matching rules will apply.

What happens if a block and allow rule match?

 

Can Policy Manager also manage firewalls for Servers, or do I still need to manage firewalls from two different places?

 

Can different set of policies be applied to different set of computers? Easily?

 

I have couple of dozens custom services, can these be migrated?

Hello hyvokar,

Allow rule will be taken in use.

Server Security 14.00 have the same F-Secure Firewall Plugin as Client Security. And it uses the same Firewall page in PMC. You can check this in Server Security 14.00 Beta.

 

> Can different set of policies be applied to different set of computers? Easily?

In the same way as all other policies in PMC.

 

> I have couple of dozens custom services, can these be migrated?

No, migration is not supported in current versions.

 

Best regards,

Vad
