Firewall alias question
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.0
Aliases are not supported in current PMC UI.
Is there a way to refer my dhcp ip address then?0
V14- Firewall does accept DNS names for the remote host. So you might want to define the alias in DNS / AD.
I'm still at V13. V14 firewall seems like a huge disaster to me.1
Without knowing that software in detail, please check this:
- Is it possible to assign the same IP aggain via DHCP, then you could use that address.
- If the server part of that machine is runing locally, how does the client side learn about it?
- In V13 we still have the concept of trusted NICs...
If you were running a windows firewall, how would that learn about the needs?
Why do you want to limit the outgoing traffic, if you could just allow incomming traffic on that ports only?0
