The hosts that you define on either side of the connection (between the source and the destination)
For example, consider a rule that defines a single local host and multiple remote hosts. As the firewall examines the packets, the local host must match the relevant IP address. However, the opposing sides of the address may be matched to any remote host. For example, you can define a rule to allow HTTP communication between the local host and either Symantec.com, Yahoo.com, or Google.com. The single rule is the same as three rules.
