Add a Policy from the List of Policy Templates

Your Firebox configuration includes a default set of policies and predefined policy templates. When you add a new policy, you select a policy template, which defines the ports and protocols the policy applies to. After you use a policy template to add a new policy, you can configure other policy properties, such as subscription services, QoS actions, and operating schedules.

On the Add Firewall Policy page, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. Select a policy type: Packet Filter, Proxies, or Custom.
  2. From the adjacent drop-down list, select a policy template.
  3. If you select a proxy, from the second drop-down list, select the proxy action.
