Configuring Destination Sets

A destination set is a group of one or more computer or folders on specific computers, grouped together for the purpose of applying rules and policies. Single destinations are grouped in a FPCDestinationSet collection that can be used to define of site and content rules, publishing rules, bandwidth rules, or routing rules. For example, you can create a destination set that contains restricted sport sites, and then define a site and content rule that prohibits access to these destinations during work hours.

The FPCDestinationSets collection is accessed through the DestinationSets property of the FPCPolicyElements object, as shown here:

Dim objFPC As New FPCLib.FPC
Dim MyDestinationSets As FPCDestinationSets
Set MyDestinationSets = objFPC.Arrays.GetContainingArray.PolicyElements.DestinationSets

A destination consists of two parts — a host description and a path within this host. For example, in the destination "", "" is the host and "/scripting" is the path. If the path is empty, the destination set defines the entire domain. A path within the host is only relevant when using the HTTP protocol. A host can be specified by a domain name, an IP address, or an IP range denoted by a From and To pair of settings.

You can add, delete, and modify destination sets by using COM objects.
