Monitor Geolocation on Fireboxes and FireClusters

Applies To: Cloud-managed Fireboxes, Locally-managed Fireboxes

On the Geolocation page, you can see connections allowed by Geolocation for each country. Blocked connections are not shown. For information about how to enable and configure Geolocation on your cloud-managed Fireboxes, see Add Geolocation Actions in WatchGuard Cloud. For locally-managed Fireboxes, see Configure Geolocation.

This page is only available when your cloud-managed Firebox, or locally-managed Firebox with cloud reporting, is connected to WatchGuard Cloud.

See Source and Destination Locations

The Map tab shows a map of the source and destination locations of connections allowed through the Firebox. Click a country to see a list of the connections and connection details for that country.

The country color indicates the number of connections:

  • Dark green — High
  • Light green — Medium
  • Grey — None
