Port Scan Detected notice - is it blocking them or not?


New user to Sonic Wall for the most part.

When the Notification center shows "Probable port scan detected", is that meaning the Sonic Wall saw one, and also blocked it, and it just wanted to let you know that? Or is it meaning it saw one, and is letting you know, because you still have to do something about that ?

    @JHSD to my knowledge there is Port Scan Detection (!) only and not Prevention. It's just a log entry to let you know someone is up to something, you have to configure your ruleset accordingly.

    If you don't like to see these messages, you can disable Port Scan Detection completely on the Internal Settings Page.
