Configuring firewall settings for mixed control

You can configure the client so that users have no control, full control, or limited control over which firewall settings they can configure.

Use the following guidelines when you configure the client:

Server control

The user cannot create any firewall rules or enable firewall settings.

Client control

The user can create firewall rules and enable all firewall settings.

Mixed control

The user can create firewall rules. You decide which firewall settings the user can enable.

To configure firewall settings for mixed control

  1. In the console, click Clients.

  2. Under Clients, select the group with the user control level that you want to modify.

  3. On the Policies tab, under Location-specific Policies and Settings, under a location, expand Location-specific Settings.

  4. To the right of Client User Interface Control Settings, click Tasks > Edit Settings.

  5. In the Control Mode Settings dialog box, click Mixed control, and then click Customize.

  6. On the Client/Server Control Settings tab, under the Firewall Policy category, do one of the following tasks:

    • To make a client setting available for the users to configure, click Client.

    • To configure a client setting, click Server.

  7. Click OK.

  8. Click OK.

  9. For each firewall setting that you set to Server, enable or disable the setting in the Firewall policy.
