MX Traffic Inspection

Does the MX only inspect traffic and apply threat protection on traffic going out the Internet 1 or Internet 2 interfaces or will it inspect traffic that traverses to LAN interfaces?

Re: MX Traffic Inspection

Just to build on @BlakeRichardson answer.

 

Content filtering only runs between WAN and LAN interfaces.

 

Threat protection runs between WAN and LAN interfaces, and also between VLAN interfaces.

"Intrusion detection feeds all packets flowing between the LAN and Internet interfaces and in-between VLANs through the SNORT® intrusion detection engine and logs the generated alerts to the Security Report."

Re: MX Traffic Inspection

From what I understand it only inspects LAN>WAN and WAN>LAN.  LAN>LAN traffic isn't inspected.
