John Adams is an HR partner in the ACME organization. ACME IT wants to limit access to HR servers to
designated IP addresses to minimize malware infection and unauthorized access risks. Thus, gateway policypermits access only from Join’s desktop which is assigned an IP address 10.0.0.19 via DHCP.
John received a laptop and wants to access the HR Web Server from anywhere in the organization. The IT
department gave the laptop a static IP address, but the limits him to operating it only from his desk. The current
Rule Base contains a rule that lets John Adams access the HR Web Server from his laptop. He wants to move
around the organization and continue to have access to the HR Web Server.
To make this scenario work, the IT administrator:
1) Enables Identity Awareness on a gateway, selects AD Query as one of the Identity Sources.
2) Adds an access role object to the Firewall Rule Base that lets John Adams PC access the HR Web Server
from any machine and from any location.
John plugged in his laptop to the network on a different network segment and he is not able to connect. How
does he solve this problem?
John should install the identity Awareness Agent
The firewall admin should install the Security Policy
John should lock and unlock the computer
Investigate this as a network connectivity issue
