Hi to all


is there a way to automatically add hosts to a rule based in a dynamic info?


my objective is to automatically add hosts, that are continuosly scanning ports in my firewalls, based on events produced by Firewall, or based in a list downloaded from an external service or server.


another example is based in NAC info that a specific device is not compliant with security policies being added to a rule that only allows some external specific sites. 




thanks in adv

If you have am list auf IPv4 Addresses, then you can use the 4 predefined "CustomExternalObject" network objects in the FW Rule and fill them:


How can I import and use external IPv4 address information with my Barracuda NG Firewall?

Or just use the REST API to add and remove entries of a network object. You can also dynamically create and delete access rules via the API as well.
