Exempting IP from being blocked for Port Scanning
Being a school, we have a Smoothwall filtering system used for Safeguarding sat between out core and the Watchguard. When we need to run an update, or simply reboot the Smoothwall, our VoIP phones lose connection with the VoIP cloud controller. When connection is re-established, all the phones try connecting again, which is interpreted by Watchguard as a port scan attack and the cloud controllers public IP address is added to the block list.
The VoIP system has it's own firewall rules.
Is there a way to prevent Watchguard from interpreting this as a port scan thus preventing it from being added to the block list?
