Uknown / Blank user

Not applicable


I want to view the traffic for all unknown users, but I am unsure how to create this...

I thought about using (user.src neq '') but that does not work I need something similar, essentially I want to view the 'from user' that has no data in (blank)

Any ideas?

I think your best option is to create a rule that has "Source User = unknown", "Application = Web-browsing, SSL" since this is the most common traffic in most networks. Place this rule before your other web browsing rules. Then you can search by SecPolicy name. I chose Web-browsing and SSL as an example but you can do this with any traffic/applications that you want to monitor. You should apply the same profiles to the "User Unknown" that you have applied to your equivilent policies with "Known" users.

good idea, but that really doesn't fit what I want, I have a rule to block 'unknown' users, I just wanted to use the monitor to see when they were on or attempting to be on.

So anyone else with ideas would be great.
