The Network Traffic Rules settings page enables you to create traffic rules to control how the Per App Tunnel works on supported devices. The rules set on this page determine how the VMware Tunnel handles network traffic from configured Per App VPN mobile applications.
Traffic can be blocked from specified domains, tunneled through to your internal network, bypass your internal network, or directed to a proxy.
Device Traffic Rules
Select the default action the VMware Tunnel app takes when the defined rules do not apply to the network traffic.
The default action is always applied last.
|Add||Select Add to create a new rule.|
Select the up or down arrows to rearrange the ranking of your network traffic rules. You can also select-and-drag the rule.
The up and down arrows only display when you have more than one rule created.
Select Add to add a triggering application for the network rule.
This drop-down menu is populated with applications with Per App VPN enabled.
Select the action from the drop-down menu that the VMware Tunnel app applies to all network traffic from the triggering app when the app launches.
Enter the hostname applicable to the action set for the rule. For example, enter all the domains to block traffic from accessing using the Block action.
Server Traffic Rules
|Add||Select to add a third-party outbound proxy. You may add additional outbound proxies by selecting Add again.|
|Hostname||Enter the proxy hostname.|
|Port||Enter the port the third-party proxy uses to listen to the VMware Tunnel|
Select the proxy authentication method used.
Selecting Basic or Ntlm displays the Credential text box.
|Credentials||Enter the Username and Password for proxy authentication.|
|Add||Select to add a server traffic rule.|
Enter the destination hostname that triggers the traffic rule.
Rules for a Windows 10 device must use IP address as the hostname.
If you are entering multiple hostnames, separate them by commas. You can use regular expressions in the hostname.
Select the action that the VMware Tunnel applies to server traffic for the destination hostname.
Select the Outbound proxy to handle server traffic for the destination hostname. If you select multiple outbound proxies, the proxies are used in a round-robin format.
The proxies that populate this menu are those proxies added in the Outbound Proxy Settings section.
