Part 6 : VMWare NSX-T Gateway Firewall configuration


This post we will cover the north – south firewall rules configuration in NSX-T.

Click on security – under north -south – click on gateway firewall

Select T0 – Add policy

Note: for creating stateful services like firewall rules SR role needs to be deployed on edge cluster. for this we need to select the edge cluster while deploying T0 or T1.

Click on policy – add rule

Add service for the rule

Provide all the details as shown below . source , destination , services and gateway – action – click publish

Now the putty session to the web servers is not working as its blocked by the firewall rule on T0.

Note: the same can be created on T1 also, but for this edge cluster needs to be selected while deploying T1.

Hope this post is useful. with this we had completed the NSX-T 3.1 installation and configuration series.
