Configure APT Blocker Server Settings

By default, the Firebox sends APT Blocker requests to the nearest cloud-based server. In the APT Blocker Advanced settings you can configure APT-blocker to send requests to a server in a specific region, or to send requests to a local on-premise server.

Set the APT Blocker Server Region

By default, APT Blocker sends APT Blocker requests to the nearest cloud-based server. You can also configure APT Blocker to always send requests to a server in a specific region.

Enable a Local On-Premises Server

In large enterprise networks, some organizations use a local on-premises server instead of cloud services for security and data privacy purposes. You can configure APT Blocker to send requests to a local on-premises server, if you have one installed on your network.

The on-premises server is available as a physical appliance, installation media, or VMware image. For more information, or to order an on-premises server, see https://www.lastline.com/contact.

To find your license key and API token information, see the information sent to you with your on-premises server product.

When you use a on-premises server, you must also import a self-signed CA certificate to the Firebox.

To import the certificate:

  1. Download the certificate from https://update.lastline.com/updates/distros/lastline-ca.crt.
  2. Complete the process to import the certificate to the Firebox, as described in:
  3. When you specify the Certificate Function option, select IPSec, Web Server, Other.
