Disable firewall/NAT rule

I have been looking but I don't see an option for this.  Is there a way to temporarily disable a firewall or NAT rule.  We have to do that occasionally and right now the only option I see is to delete the rule.

 

Thanks, Gordon

I can't find of any easy way to temporarily disable a single rule. You could use group policy to override all rules (such as using the built in white list policy).

I've thought that would be a useful feature as well.  Occasionally I just want to disable a rule to test if it is causing issues without having to delete and re-create it.

Yep.  And sometimes I need to create a temporary rule for some project that we have.  It is just easier sometimes to be able to click disable.  Same with NAT.  I have done it with those as well at times.   Put in a Wish for it.  Maybe if they get enough they will add it.  It should be fairly simple to do.

The MX beta firmware 15.3/15.4 allows NO-NAT configuration. I debated using it and opted to run with turning off NAT on the port on the device ahead of the MX, so there is not a double NATting issue. Optionally, I can turn the NATting back on to test what occurs . . .
