Enabling or disabling network intrusion prevention or browser intrusion prevention

You can enable or disable each type of intrusion prevention separately. Typically, you should not disable either type of intrusion prevention.

Browser intrusion prevention is supported on Windows computers only.

See Managing intrusion prevention on your client computers.

You can also exclude particular computers from network intrusion prevention.

See Setting up a list of excluded computers.

Note:

To configure these settings in mixed control, you must also enable these settings in the Client User Interface Mixed Control Settings dialog box.

See Configuring firewall settings for mixed control.
