Add a device to Device Trust

You can manually add a device to the Device Trust. You can add a device by specifying the following:

  • The name or description of the device

  • The IP address or physical address of the device

If you trust a device that is not on your network, you can expose your computer to potential security risks.

Add a device to Device Trust

  1. In the Norton main window, click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, under Detailed Settings, click Firewall.

  3. On the General Settings tab, in the Device Trust row, click Configure.

  4. In the Device Trust window, click Add.

  5. In the Add Device window, in the Name box, type the name of the device that you want to add to your network.

    The maximum character length of the device name should not exceed 15 characters.

  6. In the IP or Physical Address box, type the IP address or physical address of the device that you want to add to the Device Trust.

    You can use the following formats in the IP or Physical Address box:

    IPv4 address

    172.16.0.0

    IPv6 address

    fe80::12ac:fe44:192a:14cc

    Physical address

    11-22-c3-5a-fe-a4

    Resolvable host

    ftp.myfiles.com

    The address that you provide is not verified until the device is physically found on the network.

  7. Select an option from the Trust Level drop-down menu. Your options are:

    Full Trust

    Adds a device to the Full Trust list.

    Full Trust devices are monitored only for known attacks and infections. You should select this setting only when you are sure that the device is completely safe.

    Restricted

    Adds a device to the Restricted list.

    Restricted devices do not have access to your computer.

  8. If you want the device to be excluded from Intrusion Prevention scans, check Exclude from IPS Scanning.

  9. Click Add Device.
