Enforced Client Policy and Reporting Server 2.3 Admin Guide

System

The System option on the Policies tab allows you to view status on the nodes, manage the schedules and mange the certificates. If you have an environment with more than one firewall in it, you can view and manage the system settings at two levels: globally and on the firewall. By selecting the global node (the top node in the left pane) you can configure and make changes across all the firewalls in your environment. By selecting an individual node, or firewall, you can configure and make changes that apply only to that particular node.

Topics:

Status

The global view (global node is selected) of the System > Status page is the default display when you first access Content Filtering Client. To see the status of particular node, select the node from the left pane.

The System > Status page displays the status information for the node selected. The status information includes:

General—Displays the serial number.
Services—Displays the following information:
License status (Current or Expired)
