Using the Gateway Enforcer appliance as a Web server

You can use the Gateway Enforcer appliance as a Web server which communicates with Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager and serves On-Demand agents. As a Web server, the Enforcer stops forwarding non-Enforcer local traffic from internal and external network but it continues to communicate with the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager. The ability to act as a Web server is especially useful in 802.1x environments when you want to deploy the Enforcer on a VLAN and serve On-Demand clients to guest users

To use the Gateway Enforcer appliance as a Web server, you disable guest enforcement. You can enable guest enforcement when you want to switch back to using the Gateway Enforcer appliance to enforce guest access.

See About advanced Gateway Enforcer appliance settings.
