Sonicwall IPS Exception List

By rlynch@lockhartcadillac. ·
I am trying to add a few people to the ?exception? list for intrusion prevention. Here is my issue?. I have a group of people accessing our network, I would like for lets say 2 of the 7 users to be exceptions to this. My problem is that when I add the exceptions by ip address, those address change depending when the users access the network. Is it possible to add mac addresses to the ips exception list. This way I know for sure that the people I want to be exceptions will always be exceptions. Thanks in advance for the help. Im running on sonicwall pro 2040 enhanced os. thanks.

why would IPS block remote access users?

by CG IT In reply to Sonicwall IPS Exception L ...

If you have public services you want remote users to access Sonicwall has that capability. Intrustion prevention doesn't get involved with remote access clients.

not remote users

sorry, i guess i explained wrong. These are local users. say i put 2 users ip addresses in the exception list so those users arent affected by ips, it works great. however if those users come login a week later and are dealt out different ip addresses by dhcp, they are now not in the exception list for ips.

Add DHCP reservations for those user's MAC addresses so they are always provided the same IP address from your DHCP server.
