Use the Settings > Network Agent > Global page to define basic monitoring and logging behavior for all instances of Network Agent connected to the current Policy Server (the Policy Server whose IP address appears in the Web Security toolbar).
The Describe Your Network list identifies the IP addresses that are part of your network in IPv4 or IPv6 format. By default, Network Agent does not monitor the traffic sent between these IP addresses (internal network communications).
Network Agent does not use this list to determine which IP addresses to monitor for Internet requests. That behavior is configured separately for each Network Agent NIC (see Configuring Network Agent NIC settings). This list is used only to exclude internal traffic (like LAN and intranet connections) from monitoring.
An initial set of entries is provided by default. You can add more entries, or edit or delete existing entries.
The Internal Traffic to Monitor list includes any internal IPv4 or IPv6 addresses (encompassed by the "Describe Your Network" list) for which you do want Network Agent to monitor traffic. This might include internal web servers, for example, to help you to track internal connections.
Any request sent from anywhere in the network to the specified internal machines is monitored. By default, this list is blank.
