The features on the Port Monitor page work in conjunction with the Desktop Web Proxy (DWP). If DWP is not installed or configured, no Port Monitor data appears.
Enabling DWP process capture
This process ensures that the Web Security Service captures DWP port data. The following procedure instructs you to enable the capture at the account level, but you can also configure at the user group level.
To enable DWP process tracking:
- Select the Accounts tab and click Edit.
- Select the DWP Configuration subtab.
- Under Connection, click Allow Process Port Update.
- Click Save.
Specifying criteria for port logs
If you have enabled the capture of DWP port data, you can access the Port Monitors page and view log details on DWP ports being monitored by the proxy. You can enter filters to create a specific view of port logs.
To specify criteria for the logs:
- Select the Monitors tab, then select Port Monitor.
The Port Monitor page shows logs written by DWP. The collected data is based on the date.
Note: The entry wsdwpps.exe that appears under Process Name is DWP’s process name.
- Select one or more dates from the last 90-day period:
Click to select a single date.
Shift-click or click and drag to select contiguous dates.
Ctrl-click to select non-contiguous dates. The current date is always selected as a default.
Click the checkbox for the data point to capture.
- When filtering the data, select a criteria from the drop-down list.
