  2. Click on the black arrow that appears,

From this menu, you can also edit the configuration, access the web administration interface, logs and activity reports of a firewall, import a certificate on a firewall, check its usage and remove a firewall from the list.

Five different icons indicate the health status of the firewalls in the first column of the list:

  • Critical icon : the firewall has a critical issue,
  • Disconnected icon : the firewall is disconnected,
  • Never firewall icon : the firewall has never been connected to the SMC server.

Scroll the mouse over the icons to display a tooltip detailing the health status for each firewall.

To filter the firewall list according to the health status:
