The vShield App Firewall allows layer 2 and layer 3 firewall rules to be published, which affect virtual machines that reside on the ESXi hosts running vShield App. By default, the firewall is in passive mode, allowing all the traffic to and from the virtual machines that run on the specified ESXi host.
In order to proceed, we require access to vShield App through the vSphere Client plugin. The client can be run on any modern Windows desktop operating system or server operating system.
The vShield vSphere Client plugin requires Adobe Flash, which is not supported on Linux operating systems at this time.
Ensure the vCenter account used for login has administrative rights to vShield Manager.
