Configuring firewall settings - BlueCat Integrity - 9.5.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Integrity

Run the configure firewall command to start, stop, or configure ping for the Address Manager firewall.

The Address Manager firewall is enabled by default. It's used to secure the server against attacks.
Warning: Upon an upgrade to Address Manager v9.5.0, ping settings will match the previous configuration. However, enabling the new firewall option in Address Manager will replace the previous firewall configuration with the new default ruleset. Previous manually created firewall rules will not migrate automatically and must be configured on the new firewall. Refer to the Customer Care portal (KI-17762) for more information on migrating existing firewall rules to the new firewall.
Warning: BlueCat strongly advises against disabling the Address Manager firewall. Disabling the firewall should only be performed for servers in a secure environment and only for short periods of time.

To configure firewall settings:

  1. From Main Session mode, type configure firewall and press ENTER.
  2. Use the following commands to modify firewall settings:
    • start—to start the Address Manager firewall.
    • stop—to disable the Address Manager firewall.
    • set allow-ping enable—to allow the Address Manager server to be pinged.
    • set allow-ping disable—to block pings.
  3. Type show and press ENTER to verify the firewall status.
