Configure the Source and Destination in a Firewall Policy

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes

This feature is only available to participants in the WatchGuard Cloud Beta program.

In a firewall policy for a cloud-managed Firebox, you specify the source and destination of the connections the policy applies to. A connection must match both the source and destination for the policy to apply to that traffic. For a Custom policy, you also select the traffic direction the policy applies to.
