Creating Static Network Objects
Static network objects group hosts and devices. They are used globally, meaning they are available for all rules. Several attributes can be used to assign hosts and devices to a static network object: IP addresses, MAC addresses, VLAN tags.
The following chapter shows how to set up a static network object for a printer. In this example, the device is identified by its MAC address.
- Navigate to Policy > Network Objects.
- Open the Static Network Objects tab.
- Click ADD GLOBAL STATIC NETWORK OBJECT to create a new object.
- Enter a Name for the object, e.g.
Printer, 1st floor.
Optional: Enter a Note to describe the object.
Under Network Definition, configure the following:
- Under Network, make sure that Internal is selected.
- Under MAC Addresses, enter the MAC address of the printer in the Included field, e.g.
Click SAVE to store the new static network object.
Click the APPLY CHANGES button in the header to activate your configuration changes.
