Firewall policies backward compatible?

Created: 24 Sep 2013 • Updated: 24 Sep 2013 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Not sure if that makes sense, but we currently have SEPM 12.1 and SEP 11/12.1 clients. The firewall we're using is originally from v11. We have some issues with an application running very slowly. In our logs we get "Block all other traffic" and blocked ethernet 0x806. I've done some looking around and it seems we need to create a new firewall policy from v12 (https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/forums/eth...). I assume v12 FW policy will work with SEP 11 clients?

Thanks

Yes, the 12.1 policy should also work with 11.x clients.

Well, the application still runs slowly. It will run exactly like it is supposed to if we turn off SEP client. This started happening after rolling out of SEP 12.1 a few weeks ago. The server the app is pulling data from is on SAVCE 10.2.

I've narrowed it down to disabling the Firewall.

We're at 12.1.2, so 12.1.3 appears to be the fix. Upgrades again :)
