Disable firewall in client security for Mac (v14)

stmarti W/ Alumni Posts: 27 Security Scout

How can we disable/uninstall/rid off the firewall component in client security for Mac?

We don't want to use f-secure's firewall at all.

In policy manager the mac client is discovered and communicates well with the policy manager.

We disabled the firewall in pm (Settings/Mac/General), and distributed the policy but the client ignores it and reports at the status tab in pm that the firewall is enabled.

    Hi Stmarti

    Are you trying to get rid of the firewall notifications? Or just simply disabling the firewall completely ?

    There is no f-secure firewall in the Client Security, it is control for the macOS firewall. So if it reported as enabled, it means macOS firewall is enabled.
