Don't miss this great new AppNote!

In Novell BorderManager (NBM) 3.7, filter configuration can be done from Novell iManager, a Web browser-based utility, as well as from the server console (FILTCFG). The configuration information is now stored in eDirectory. In BorderManager Enterprise Edition 3.6 and earlier, filter configuration was done through FILTCFG, a text-based utility that runs on the server. The configuration information was stored in files.

Filter configuration through iManager is role-based and can be done by the assigned users only.

The iManager utility is user-friendly and streamlined to be much more intuitive than the FLTCFG utility. The packet filtering plug-in shares a common look and feel with other iManager plug-ins. So once you become familiar with plug-ins on iManager, it is relatively easy to navigate through NBM-related packet filtering. The filtering plug-in also comes with context-sensitive help to facilitate packet filtering operations.

This AppNote describes TCP/IP packet filter configuration through Novell iManager and provides relevant migration, management, and troubleshooting tips.
