How do I find the "side" information of an IP address?



Problem:  I am trying to create a matching rule to classify a host.  I know the host's IP address.  How do I find the "side" information to create the matching rule?

Solution:  The PacketShaper's outside interface should point to the Internet.  Anything between the Packetshaper and the Internet (including the Internet) is considered "outside."  Otherwise, the host is considered "inside."  You can also enter the following CLI commands on the PacketShaper to verify the side.

  1. Type ping x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the IP address.
  2. Type hostdb info x.x.x.x where x.x.x.x is the IP address.  In the output, you will see either "I" or "O" next to the IP address.  "I" is inside.  "O" is outside.
