what if minemeld feed is not working

What happens if if whitelist some IP and then MineMeld is shutdown ? Will source or destination in the rule be replaced by 'any' ?

L2 Linker

You mean what will the firewall do if MineMeld goes down? It'll use the last known copy of the list until MineMeld is back up. You'll see a message like this in the firewall logs:


Unable to fetch external list. Using old copy for refresh.

L3 Networker

Nice, thnx. And if firewall had no copy of the list at all because Minemeld went down right after creating a rule ?

L7 Applicator

If there is no previous copy the list is handled as it was empty, with no addresses/domain/URLs inside.
