    Configuring Prefix List (NSM Procedure)

    A prefix list is a named list of IP addresses. You can specify an exact match with incoming routes and apply a common action to all matching prefixes in the list. This feature enables you to create a named prefix list and include it in a routing policy.

    To configure prefix list in NSM:

    1. In the navigation tree select Device Manager > Devices and select the device from the list.
    2. In the configuration tree, expand Policy Options.
    3. Select Prefix List.
    4. Add/Modify the parameters as specified in Table 1.
    5. Click one:
      • OK—To save the changes.
      • Cancel—To cancel the modifications.
      • Apply — To apply the protocol settings.

    Note: After you make changes to a device configuration, you must push that updated device configuration to the physical security device for those changes to take effect. You can update multiple devices at one time. See Updating Devices section in the Network and Security Manager Administration Guide for more information.
