How to Create a Pass Access Rule

  • Last updated on

A Pass access rule permits traffic for a specific Service coming from the Source to access the selected Destination . For the Source and Destination , you can specify network objects, IP addresses, networks, or geolocation objects .


Create a Pass Access Rule

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Rules.
  2. Click Lock.
  3. Either click the plus icon (+) at the top right of the rule set, or right-click the rule set and select New > Rule.
  4. Select Pass as the action.
  5. Enter a name for the rule. For example, LAN-DMZ.
  6. 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.

    For the example access rule displayed in the figure above, a network object named HQ-DMZ containing the IP address of the DMZ server has been created. For more information, see How to Create Network Objects.

  7. Click OK.
  8. 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.
  9. Click Send Changes and Activate.
