Hello. I hope I have a simple question here and hope that it has a simple answer.
We have multiple gateways that connect to remote RTU sites. All of the sites communicate with one single “master” gateway, rather, the one “master” communicates with all of the remote sites(it sends out a message to retrieve the data needed).
I have one particular RV50 that seems to be getting hammered with a lot of traffic that is driving our data usage way above our limit.
Is it possible to just setup the firewall(using ACEmanager) under the Security tab to allow just the one IP address(it is a static IP) from the “master” RTU? Will this stop all other traffic from accessing the remote RTU that is sitting behind the RV50?
I did enable the trusted IP outbound and inbound, and I put in the IP address of the “master” gateway that will be communicating with that particular RTU. However, I assumed that this would also limit access to the gateway itself, but I am still able to access ACEmanager from another IP address that was not put on the firewall list.
Is there anything else I can do to cut out whatever traffic is going to the RV50 and driving our data usage up? I am rather new to all of this so I hope I am explaining the situation correctly.
