You should configure the Firewall settings to monitor network connections in a KNOX container.

To configure Firewall in a KNOX container:

  1. In the console tree, in the Managed devices folder, select the administration group to which the Android devices belong.
  2. In the workspace of the group, select the Policies tab.
  3. Open the policy properties window by double-clicking any column.
  4. In the policy Properties window, select the Manage Samsung KNOX  → KNOX containers section.
  5. In the Firewall window, click Configure.

    The Firewall window opens.

  6. Select the Firewall mode:
    • To allow all inbound and outbound connections, move the slider to Allow all.
    • To block all network activity except that of apps on the list of exclusions, move the slider up to Block all but exceptions.
  7. If you have set the Firewall mode to Block all but exceptions, create a list of exclusions:
    1. Click Add.

      This opens the Exclusion for Firewall window.

    2. In the App name field, enter the name of the mobile app.
    3. In the Package name field, enter the system name of the mobile app package (for example, com.mobileapp.example).
    4. Click OK.
  8. Click the Apply button to save the changes you have made.

Mobile device settings are configured after the next device synchronization with the Kaspersky Security Center.
