  • The AGENT_PERMIT configuration parameter allows Dfw to restrict requests from the Agent (another module) by using one of following methods: IP (IP address), HOST(host name) and DOMAIN (domain name).
  • If possible, do not specify the "IP" value as the evaluation method in setting AGENT_PERMIT. Instead, use "HOST" or "DOMAIN". Dfw calls the gethostbyname() function only if the "IP" method is specified.

Note: The HP IceWall product is only available in Japan.
