What is the 'Other' firewall action?

Last Updated: Sep 04, 2012 04:40PM PDT
On the Overview dashboard in Fastvue TMG Reporter, you may see a large amount of traffic assigned to a Firewall action called 'Other'.

Any actions logged by the TMG Firewall that are not Allowed, Denied or Failed are grouped into 'Other' on the Dashboard.  This includes actions such as Established, Terminated, and Intermediate. For the full list of actions see

You can use Alerts to get an idea of the types of Firewall Actions being classed as 'Other' on the Dashboard. Go to Settings | Alerts | Add Alert, and configure an alert with the following options:
  • Action not equal to Denied; Allowed; Failed
  • Alert Header - Show: Action
  • Alert Evidence Table: What ever you like, but try Rule and Source IP.

Go to the Alerts tab and group by Alert. You should start to see alerts showing the firewall actions other than Failed, Denied and Allowed.
