How to: view and manage live connections on your XG Firewall

NetworkHow-to videosXG Firewall

XG FirewallWe’ve created a comprehensive library of “How To” videos to help you get the most out of your XG Firewall, including a series of Getting Started and Networking videos.

Today, I’d like to share a short Networking video that shows you how to view and manage connections on your XG Firewall.

We begin within the Network Security Control Center, where you click on the Connections widget to go to System Tools > Connection List.

In this video, we’ll show you how to:

  • Drop or delete any active session
  • View the state of a session, including source and destination
  • Add additional properties to the Connection List
  • Isolate and troubleshoot packets going through a specific firewall rule
  • Filter the connection display by interface, user, protocol, port, packet type and IP address

You can watch the entire Networking video series on the Sophos Products YouTube channel. And you can check out all the posts in this XG Firewall “How To” series on the Sophos Blog.

You can also find help and product updates at our XG Firewall Community Forum.
