Which virtual firewall rules do I need to configure to allow dynamic host configuration functionality on a virtual machine in 5nine Cloud Security?

Issue

I want to configure virtual firewall rules to allow dynamic host configuration functionality (DHCP) on a virtual machine (VM). How do I do that?

 

Resolution

To allow dynamic host configuration functionality on a VM, the following firewall rules must be added:

  • IP rule allowing inbound UDP traffic on the local port 68 for DHCP client.
  • IP rule allowing outbound UDP traffic on the remote port 67 for a request to the DHCP server.
