About configuring the Symantec Gateway Enforcer appliance on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console

You can add or edit the configuration settings for the Gateway Enforcer appliance in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager Console.

Before you can proceed, you must complete the following tasks:

  • Install the software for the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager on a computer.

    The computer on which the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager software is installed is also referred to as the management server.

  • Connect the Symantec Gateway Enforcer appliance to the network.

    See Setting up an Enforcer appliance.

  • Configure the Symantec Gateway Enforcer appliance on the local Gateway Enforcer console during the installation.

    See Configuring an Enforcer appliance.

After you finish these tasks, you can specify additional configuration settings for the Gateway Enforcer appliance on a management server.

When you install a Gateway Enforcer appliance, a number of default settings and ports are automatically set up. The default settings for the Gateway Enforcer appliance on the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager allow all clients to connect to the network if the client passes the Host Integrity check. The Gateway Enforcer appliance acts as a bridge. Therefore you can complete the process of setting up the Gateway Enforcer appliance and deploying clients without blocking access to the network.

However, you need to change the default settings on Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager to limit which clients are allowed access without authentication. Optionally, there are other Enforcer default settings for the Gateway Enforcer appliance that you may want to customize before you start enforcement.
