Question:

If I make a change from the local WebUI or CLI, when is the new configuration synchronized with InControl? And is it performed by the InControl Client or Server?

Answer:

InControl is monitoring the Firewall’s status using NetCon ”pings”. The reply from the firewall also contains a “change value”. When this values changes, InControl will know something was done to the firewall locally and will perform a configuration download and add the new configuration to its database.

It is the InControl Server that performs the monitoring and download operation.
