Transparent/Split and firewall rules

Hello all,

I'm new to Sophos technology and I was wondering whether there is a specific rule to be created on my firewall XG210 for my RED device to work properly in Transparent/Split mode because it seems all users on remote network have access to everything.

Thank you.

  • Hi,

    The Mode on RED just mean, what the RED is doing on routing.

    You need to specify the correct firewall rules on XG to limit the access to your resources.

    Hi ManBearPig,

    I have my rules but how to make the RED device recognizes them?

    I might have been unclear.


  • In reply to Dan V:

    As mention above, the RED is a "stupid" routing device. It will route all the traffic, you are selecting in the red deployment to your XG. 

    XG is looking for a firewall rule, which applies to the traffic.

    Maybe check your firewall ruleset with the policy check to find the rule or take a look into the log viewer, which rule applies incorrectly and allow the traffic.
