Network Agent can't communicate with Filtering Service
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
With Forcepoint Web Security, Network Agent must be able to communicate with Filtering Service to record protocol management, bandwidth, and other logging information. In standalone Forcepoint URL Filtering environments, no policy enforcement can occur when Network Agent and Filtering Service cannot communicate.

If so, the new Filtering Service internal unique identifier (UID) or IP address is not automatically registered with Network Agent and the Forcepoint Security Manager.

2.
In the left navigation pane, click Settings > Network Agent, position the mouse over the Global menu item until a sub-menu is displayed, then select the IP address of the Network Agent machine.
3.
At the top of the page, under Filtering Service Definition, expand the Server IP address list, and then select the IP address of the Filtering Service machine.
4.
Click OK at the bottom of the page to cache the update. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy.
