Left side bar OverviewThis left hand collumn can be useful for troubleshooting a user’s connection issues. Depending on the error the user is receiving; no AntiVirus, Windows Updates, ect; you can select the corresponding policy group and try and find their device.
The lower section of the left sidebar breaks down the network by devices. The “Host Type Counts” displays how many devices of a certain type of device are connected to the network. If you are looking for a certain device use the Search Options or the Sessions forms.
The Summery selection will lead to a list view page that will display all devices on the network That Safety Connect is aware of. This may be a little too much information. If you are looking for a particular device use Search Options or Sessions under the navigation dropdown.
Most of the list views in Safety connect will appear like the one below.Most of the collumns are general information: IP address, MAC Address, Username, Machine name, Device type.The status collumn indicates what policy group each machine is in. The left icon is an indication of what group the device is in and the right icon describes why the device is in the group. The two exceptions to this are the NIC icon and the warning icon. The NIC icon indicates the device is complient with all policies and has open access to the internet. The warning icon indicates the user has been issues a warning for some policy violation on their machine but still in the open access group. The icon to the right indicates the reason. If the right icon is selected the page that the user sees will be displayed.
This page can be accessed by selecting the IP address of the desired device in any list view interface. This page reiterates some information such as the IP and MAC addresses. Under the Policy group pane there is a little more information on the devices policy status such as the exact policies it may be violating and why it is violated.
