Add a device to the Network Security Map

Jun 8, 2010

You can manually add a computer or device to the Network Security Map.

You can add the following details when you add a device:
  • The name or description
  • The IP address or physical address
The Network Security Map finds any computers that are connected to your network. However, you can add the computers and the devices that are currently not connected.

Norton Internet Security adds to the Trust Control network all the devices that you manually add to Network Security Map. You can select the Trust Control network in the Network Details drop-down list to view the devices that you added. You can also edit the name of the device.

Note:

You cannot edit the Trust Control network details.


The default trust level of the devices that you add to the Network Security Map is Protected. However, you can change the trust level of the devices.

Note:

If you trust a device that is not on your network, you can expose your computer to potential security risks.
  1. In the Norton Internet Security main window, in the Network pane, click Network Security Map.
  2. On the left side of the Network Security Map window, under Total in Network, click the plus symbol.
  3. In the Add a Device window, in the Name box, type the name of the device that you want to add to the Network Security Map.

    The maximum character length of the device name is 15 characters.
  4. In the IP or Physical Address box, type the IP address or physical address of the device that you want to add to the Network Security Map.

    You can use the following formats in the IP or Physical Address box:
    IPv4 address 192.168.2.1
    IPv6 address fe80::12ac:fe44:192a:14cc
    Physical address 11-22-c3-5a-fe-a4
    Resolvable host ftp.myfiles.com
    The address that you provide is not verified until the device is physically found on the network.
  5. Click Add Device.
