Edit a global rule

Note: If you use role-based administration:
  • You must have the Policy setting - firewall right to configure a firewall policy.
  • You cannot edit a policy if it is applied outside your active sub-estate.

For more information, see Managing roles and sub-estates.

Important: We recommend that you change global rules only if you are familiar with networking protocols.

To edit a global rule:

  1. Double-click the firewall policy you want to change.
  2. On the Welcome page of the Firewall Policy wizard, click Advanced firewall policy.
  3. Under Configurations, click Configure next to the location for which you want to configure the firewall.
  4. Click the Global Rules tab.
  5. In the Rule list, select the rule that you want to edit.
  6. Click Edit.
    For information on the global rule settings, see Sophos knowledgebase article 57757.
