zone firewall rules

I have installed vshield zone. i want to set some firewall rules to control the traffic. but i am afraid to do that, because sometimes it may affect to the existing network communication. so can anybody give me instructions on creating basic firewall rules?

thanks

Hi

what kinds of of firewall rules are you looking to deploy? The best way to learn vhield is to follow the administration guide here: www.vmware.com/go/vshield-Admin-Guide
