Policy Rules and IPv4/IPv6 Support

You should be aware of IPv4 and IPv6 support for each deployment mode when configuring policy rules.

Source Users and User Groups

A policy based on selected users or user groups will not work for IPv6 traffic, even for Bridge Mode or Software Switch configurations.

Source and Destination IP Addresses/FQDNs

Bridge Mode or Software Switch

Cloud Edge supports IPv6 if the appliance is running in Bridge Mode or as a Software Switch deployment.

  • You can add both IPv4 and IPv6 address objects when configuring policies.
  • FQDNs entries can resolve to either IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.
Routing Mode

Cloud Edge does not support IPv6 if the appliance is running in Routing Mode.

  • You can add only IPv4 address objects when configuring policies.

  • FQDNs entries must resolve to IPv4 addresses.

Source MAC Addresses

You can hover over a MAC address to verify which IPv4 is assigned to the MAC address. If the Cloud Edge appliance is running in Bridge Mode or as a Software Switch, you can additionally see any IPv6 addresses that are assigned to a MAC address.
