Security Groups

Infrastructure -> Network - Security Groups

Overview

A security group acts as a virtual firewall that controls the traffic for one or more instances. When you launch an instance, you associate one or more security groups with the instance. You add rules to each security group that allow traffic to or from its associated instances. You can modify the rules for a security group at any time; the new rules are automatically applied to all instances that are associated with the security group.

Important

The Host Level Firewall must be enabled for Security Groups to be applied. The Host Level Firewall can be enabled in Administration -> Settings -> Host Level Firewall Enable/Disable

Important

When local firewall management is enabled, Morpheus will automatically set an IP table rule to allow incoming connections on tcp port 22 from the Morpheus Appliance.
