    Hi Community,

    Hope you guys are doing well.

    Could you please tell me how to check whether the gateway is running in sniffing mode or in Bridge mode.
    I have tried running command "impctl gateway show" as stated in
    But i did not found the desired output.

    Is there any other method through which i can check?

    Hello Ganesh,

    As per my knowledge there are two ways how you can look for gateway mode:

    - CLI
    - Management Interface


    CASE 1 - CLI

    As I know via CLI are two methods:

    Method 1:  impctl gateway show

    The output in my lab as below:

    Another way how you can check the gateway via cli is by following the steps below on the Method 2:

    >> impcfg
    >> Manage SecureSphere Gateway

    In this case the WAF One Box is in Bridge IMPHVA Mode:


    If you want to change the mode of the Gateway:

    >> Manage SecureSphere Gateway
    >> Change Operation Mode 


    CASE 2 - Management Interface

    You can find on the following path:

    Main > Setup > Gateway

    I hope it will help and is the desired output.
