Create a dynamic interface object

You must create a dynamic interface so that Sophos Central can push policies you create to the firewalls in your AWS Auto Scaling cluster.

To configure a dynamic interface, do as follows:

  1. Sign in to Sophos Central.

  2. Go to Firewall Management > Dynamic Objects.

  3. Click Interfaces.

  4. Click Add Dynamic Interface.

  5. For Name, enter PortB.


    Name is case-sensitive.

  6. For Interface Type select WAN.

  7. Under Mapping, select Default (Any firewall) from the Firewalls drop-down menu, select the interface from the Interfaces available drop-down menu, then click Add.

  8. Click Save.

  9. To delete a mapping, click the trashcan icon next to it.


    You can't delete the default mapping.

You can now create firewall policies. To create a Web Application Firewall (WAF) policy, see Create a WAF rule.
