    Configuring Hosts (NSM Procedure)

    You can configure hostnames in NSM that the Secure Access device can resolve to IP addresses. This feature is useful when:

    • Your DNS server is not accessible to the Secure Access device.
    • You use WINS to access servers within the LAN.
    • Your corporate security policy does not allow internal servers to be listed on an external DNS or requires that internal hostnames are masked.

    To configure hosts:

    1. In the NSM navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices. Click the Device Tree tab, and then double-click the Secure Access device for which you want to configure hosts.
    2. Click the Configuration tab, and select System > Network Settings > Hosts. The corresponding workspace appears.
    3. Add or modify settings as specified in Table 1.
    4. Click one:
      • OK—Saves the changes.
      • Cancel—Cancels the modification.
