Host Integrity Checking Forewall Policy Locking to LiveUpdate Port 7070

Created: 03 Apr 2013 | 2 comments

We have a requirement to implement a host integrity check on our SEP clients to ensure they are up to date. I have managed to get everything working except the firewall policy which I a trying to lock to only port 7070 (LiveUpdate) within the Quarantine area. Has anyone done this sort of thing and can advise me what I need to do or provide an example policy, the firewall policy is not the easiest thing to get working and seems to currently be getting ignored!!

This policy may be extended to check for security patches that have been applied to clients and therefore lockdown to an enterprise management solution ports but I'm guessing if I can get the first part working I'll be able to get the second part done fairly easily!!

Thanks as always

Hello,

please, have a look at the firewall policy documentation:

Of course, ensure the Network Threat Protection (firewall and IPS) is installed and active on the clients.

Can you clarify the issue please?

Is it that the client is not switching to the Quarantine Policies, or that the qurantine policies are not behaving as intended?  If it's the latter, can you advise if this is incorrectly blocking everything, or allowing everything?

Many thanks!
