An IPv6 access rule applies the selected action to the IPv6 traffic coming from the Source to the selected Destination for a specific Service.
Before you begin
- Enable IPv6 and assign box- and service-level IPv6 addresses. For more information, see How to Enable IPv6.
Create an IPv6 access rule
- Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Rules.
- Click Lock.
- Either click the +v6 icon at the top right of the ruleset, or right-click the ruleset and select New > IPv6 Rule.
- Select Block, Deny or Pass as the action.
- Enter a name for the rule.
- Specify the following settings that must be matched by the traffic to be handled by the access rule:
- Source – The source addresses of the traffic.
- Destination – The destination addresses of the traffic.
- Service – Select a service object, or select Any for this rule to match for all services.
- Click OK.
- Drag and drop the access rule so that it is the first rule that matches the traffic that you want it to forward. Ensure that the rule is located above the BLOCKALL rule; rules located below the BLOCKALL rule are never executed.
