End-of-Life (EoL)
Description
The vm-interface is used by malware running on the WF-500 appliance virtual machine sandbox to access the Internet. Activating this port is recommended and will help WildFire better identify malicious activity if the malware accesses the Internet for phone-home or other activity. It is important that this interface has an isolated connection to the Internet. For more information, see Set Up the WF-500 Appliance VM Interface.
After configuring the vm-interface, enable it by running the following command:
set deviceconfig setting wildfire vm-network-enable yes
Hierarchy Location
set deviceconfig system
Syntax
set vm-interface {
default-gateway <ip_address>;
dns-server <ip_address>;

link-state;
mtu;
netmask <ip_address>;
speed-duplex;
{
