Intra-Interface Traffic Inspection

By default, the Firebox inspects traffic that goes in and out of the same external interface and applies firewall policies to that traffic. The Firebox does not inspect traffic that goes in and out of internal interfaces by default.

You can enable or disable intra-interface inspection on physical and link aggregation interfaces. If you enable this setting, the Firebox applies firewall policies to intra-interface traffic for the specified interface. In Fireware v12.9 or higher, you can enable or disable the setting from Fireware Web UI or Policy Manager. In Fireware v12.8, you must use the CLI to enable or disable the setting, as described in the Fireware CLI section of this topic.
