CSA 5.1 issue


We are in test mode and i find that the system is complaining that a host in our company tried to open a connection at 80 to a server in the company, many of our applications are web based so it is normal, what would be the best way to tune this event?

Re: CSA 5.1 issue

What I've done is created an exception rule for a group, then add the servers into the group so that the exception only applies to the machines (servers) to allow port 80 connections.

You could make that exception rule part of a rule module that has a system state for IP address ranges internal to your network. In other words, the ALLOW over port 80 will only work on the servers you add to the group and ONLY if the incoming client has an IP address within your network.
