Note

To fully use this screen, you must have the following permissions assigned to your account:

  • Read Virtual Data Centers
  • Read Firewall
  • Write Firewall

In the Firewall screen, each entry in the table represents a single firewall rule; however, each firewall rule can contain several protocols (and ports).

You can combine related protocols (and ports) into a Service Group. For example, if you want to create a firewall rule to block three types of traffic, you do not have to create three separate firewall rules. Instead, you can combine the three types of traffic (protocols and ports) into a single, configurable Service Group. Then, when you create a firewall rule, you can pick the newly created Service Group.
