You want to block network traffic associated with a specific IP address using the Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) Network Threat Protection Firewall component. How can this be accomplished?
Edit the firewall policy associated with the clients to add a corresponding rule as follows:
Open the Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM), click the Policies tab, and edit the policy you wish to change
Add a blank rule
Modify the “Host” properties so that the “Source/Destination” IP is the address you wish to block (Local/Remote is less generic, and requires the local address of the client on which the rule should be applied)
Change the “Action” to Block
Save and deploy the policy as needed.
This will block all incoming and outgoing traffic associated with the specified IP address.
