Dear All,

Is there any policy in which we can block client connection to a perticular Group or machine.

Do you have configured any firewall policy

Thank you for posting in Symantec community.

I would be glad to answer your query.

We can set up client installation packages with their group membership If you define a group in the package, the client automatically is added to the appropriate group. The client is added the first time it makes a connection to the management server.

We can turn on blocking if you do not want clients to be added automatically to a specific group when they connect to the network.

Please provide more information on your requirement.

If you're just trying to prevent new clients from being added to a specific group, then Chetan's article linked by Rash_M will do the trick ("Thumbs Up" to both).

However, if you're trying to block actual network traffic, then can you let us know why?  Essentially, the SEP FW isn;t going to cut it, as the SEP Client to SEPM comms are always allowed, as are LU sessions.

may you clarify what kind of traffic you would like to block?

Are you talking about the communication of the clients with their Manager or with something else?

Are you willing to block client connections to the Default group?
