    Creating Firewall Exceptions for Stateless Firewalls

    To create a firewall exception for a subscriber:

    1. Access the subscriber’s Firewall page.
    2. In the Firewall page, click Create Firewall Exception.

      The Create Exception dialog box appears. Figure 1 shows the appearance of the dialog box when Enterprise Manager Portal is set to Advanced mode.

    3. Enter field values to configure the values for the firewall exception.

      See Fields for Exceptions to Stateless Firewalls in Enterprise Manager Portal.

      Which protocols you select determines which associated protocol fields are available for editing.

      Note: If a user changes the value for a protocol when the configuration level for the portal is set to Normal mode, values for the following fields may be deleted: TCP Flags, Fragmentation Flags, Fragmentation Offset, Packet Length, ICMP Type, and ICMP Code.

      If the value of a protocol is changed to the original setting, the portal restores the associated field values that were previously removed.

    4. Click Create.

      The Firewall page shows the exception configured. Figure 2 shows three exceptions configured for a brickwall firewall service. The exceptions appear in priority order.
