See Connections

You can also use HostWatch to see information about the connections that involve a selected item, and includes the IP addresses, port number, time, connection type, and direction.

The bottom of the HostWatch window shows all connections to and from all interfaces. The information appears in a table that includes:

  • Source and destination addresses
  • Port
  • XTM device interface used, and whether traffic was inbound or outbound
  • Whether the connection was normal, proxied, or blocked
  • Details, such as the time the connection was created or the command used to create the connection

To see connections for an interface:

Double-click an item in either the left or right list.
The Connections For dialog box appears.
