IP host

You can see a list of all dynamic hosts, default hosts, and manually added hosts.

You can add new hosts, and edit and delete existing hosts. You can add IP addresses to an IP host group.

You can create IP hosts using an IP address, IP address range or list, and a network. You can use these when you configure rules and policies.

The IP host page shows a list of the dynamic hosts that are automatically added when you create VPN remote access connections, manually added hosts, and default hosts used for remote access connections: ##WWAN1, ##ALL_SSLVPN_RW, ##ALL_IPSEC_RW, and ##ALL_RW.

Default host Usage

##ALL_RW Client IP hosts for new connections created through SSL VPN remote access and Sophos Connect. Consists of the ##ALL_SSLVPN_RW and ##ALL_IPSEC_RW client IPs.
