    There are no traffic sources available to this Database Firewall

    Joseph-Oracle
      Hi, Experts, I want to create " Enforcement Points" in DBforewall. But I get message :"There are no traffic sources available to this Database Firewall, You will not be able to use the system in its current state. Please install more network interfaces and reinstall the Database Firewall software. "
      I have two netwotk cards. one is for DBFW access, one is for capture network trafic. Any one can help me?

      #ifconfig

          I think the problem is that as the error message says, you don't have enough network interfaces available.

          The installation process creates a network bridge and therefore you need 3 network interfaces: eth0 ist for management access, eth1 and eth2 are the ports for the bridge (an IP will not be assigned for these two interfaces) and at last the br0 interface. When you don't provide enough interfaces during the installation process, the bridge will not be configured and this could be the problem.
