Configuring Network Threat Protection (NTP) settings for mixed control
A Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) client can be configured so that users have no control, full control, or limited control over which NTP settings they can configure. When configuring these settings, please take note of the following guidelines:
If the client is set to Server Control mode, the user cannot create any firewall rules or alter firewall and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) settings.
If the client is set to Client Control mode, the user can create firewall rules and change all firewall and IPS settings.
If the client is set to to Mixed Control, the user can create firewall rules and has some control over firewall and IPS settings.
The amount of control over the firewall and IPS settings is based upon configurations set within the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM).
