DESCRIPTION: How to Restrict Access to Specific Port(s) and Allow ICMP to a Backend Resource
This article describes a scenario in which an administrator needs to allow access to a backend server through just certain ports; the administrator also needs to allow ICMP to that host. In the following procedure, port 443 and ICMP will be allowed to a specific host by creating two access control rules.
Log in to AMC.
Click Access Control in the main navigation menu.
From the list of the rules, select an existing rule or use the New button to create a new rule.
