Creating Services and Service Groups

Before You Begin

Use the Create Service page to create a service. You can create services based on protocols and ports used by an application. The protocols used to create a service include: TCP, UDP, MS-RPC, SUN-RPC, ICMP, and ICMPv6. Once you create a service, you can combine it with other services to form a service group. Service groups are useful when you want to apply the same policy to multiple services.

You can also create or modify protocols that you base your services on, from the Services page.

Procedure

To configure a service or service group:

  1. Select Configuration > Shared Objects > Services.

    The Services page appears.

  2. Click the add icon (+) to create service or service group.

    The Create Services page appears.

  3. Complete the configuration of a service according to the guidelines provided in Table 283.

    If you want to configure a service group, see Table 284.

  4. Click OK to save the changes. If you want to discard your changes, click Cancel instead.

A new service or service group with the configuration you provided is created. You can use this service or service group as an endpoint in firewall policies.

Table 283 provides guidelines on using the fields to create a service.
