SonicOS 7 Rules and Policies

Verifying App Rules Configuration

To verify your policy configuration, you can send some traffic that should match your policy. You can use a network protocol analyzer such as Wireshark™ to view the packets. For information about using Wireshark, see Wireshark.

Be sure to test for both included and excluded users and groups. You should also run tests according to the schedule that you configured, to determine that the policy is in effect when you want it to be. Check for log entries in the MONITOR | Logs > System Logs page in the SonicOS management interface.

You can view tooltips on the POLICY | Rules and Policies > App Rules page when you hover your cursor over each policy. The tooltips show details of the match objects and actions for the policy. Also, the bottom of the page shows the number of policies defined.
