Using IP Filter Rule Sets

    To manage your firewall, you use IP Filter to specify rule sets that you use to filter your network traffic. You can create the following types of rule sets:

  • Packet filtering rule sets

  • Network Address Translation (NAT) rule sets

Additionally, you can create address pools to reference groups of IP addresses. You can then use these pools later in a rule set. The address pools can accelerate rule processing. Address pools also make managing large groups of addresses easier.
