Creating Firewall rules to replace predefined Access Protection port-blocking rules

The Migration Assistant does not migrate predefined or user-defined Access Protection port-blocking rules from VirusScan Enterprise 8.8. However, you can create firewall rules in Endpoint Security Firewall that define behavior equivalent to the predefined VirusScan Enterprise port-blocking rules.

VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 includes these four predefined port-blocking rules that are not migrated:

  • AVO10: Prevent mass mailing worms from sending mail
  • AVO11: Prevent IRC communication
  • CW05: Prevent FTP communication
  • CS06: Prevent HTTP communication
