Firewall Zones

Postby superdave98 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:45 am


Before the firewall change, we had a VPN zone that was used for the Family History Center. Now, after the firewall replacement, we have 3 zones, USER, FAC and SP. So, the USER zone has been what we used for APs, etc. As I understand it, the FAC zone is for the FM group's use for future smart devices. What is the SP zone intended to be? Does that replace the old VPN zone for the Family History Center, or is it for something else.

As the STS, I feel completely out of the loop on the firewall change. The first I heard of the change was when the contractor showed up to do the replacement.
