I have a question on vDS and firewalls. I hope someone will shed light on this. Developers are complaining about a server and asking me whether we are blocking any ports.
I only take care of the VMware and do not see we do anything; like that. As I understand vDS are layer 2 switches and we only tag the VLAN and rest down to security tech.
Is it possible to block ports on VDS?
