Learn About Web Access Policies

image TMG firewalls introduce a new concept for creating Access Rules – called Web Access Policy.

The thing about Web Access Policy rules is that they only handle HTTP and HTTPS connections. In addition to that, they are grouped, with the idea that if you group the HTTP/HTTPS rules it will be easier for you to figure out what’s going on.

How does it work? Is it really easier to create Web rules as a group than it is to create discrete Access Rules the old fashioned way?

Check it out for yourself – but first read this informative blog post by Linda Lior on Web Access Policy on the TMG Firewall Team blog over at:
