Configure a Firewall Filter for an EX Series Switch


You configure firewall filters on EX Series switches to control traffic that enters or exits the switch ports. To configure a firewall filter, you must first configure the filter and then apply it to a port.

The following workflow describes the steps that are required to configure a firewall filter and assign it to a switch port.

  1. Create a firewall filter. See Add Firewall Filters.
  2. Create a term and associate the term to the firewall filter. See Add Terms to Firewall Filters.
  3. Assign the firewall filter to a port profile. See Add Port Profiles.

    Or manually edit the port configurations. See Edit Configuration of Ports.

  4. Deploy the port profile to a port. See Deploy or Redeploy a Port Profile.
