Hi All,

We just received multiple threats on the USG firewall of our customer. The firewall blocked all the threats, so that's good.

We have a question about threat logging. Would it be possible to log not only the IP addresses which are logged with a threat but also the MAC address? It would save us a lot of time tracing the IP address through the DHCP server or in the ARP table.

I hope you could help confirm that.

Thanks!

Hi,
No, it's not supported to do that. Because when the devices are not connected to the firewall directly, the MAC address would be the last hop device MAC address, which cannot identify the specified user.
Besides, I consult the USG R&D, they informed me that the introduction of the MAC field is not possible.
