This section describes the steps required to configure Egress rules to allow traffic from the Controller, for network services and SE communication.

To configure firewall rules to allow outgoing traffic from a Controller:


  1. In the Create a firewall rule screen, select Egress as the Direction of traffic and Allow as the Action on match.
  2. Select the type of target from Target Type drop-down list to apply the firewall rules only to the selected instances within the virtual network. Based on the type of target selected, you can specify the source filter ranges, or tags, or service account scope details.
  3. Select Specified protocol and ports option in Protocols and ports and enter the TCP, UDP ports to which the firewall rules are applicable.
  4. See Protocol Ports, to identify the ports to which the Controller sends traffic as a part of the network operation and add the ports.
  5. Click Create button.
