Goal

Connection Filters allow you to deny access to UNWANTED Connections at the network level. Connection Filters can be used to protect server resources on individual servers, server clusters, or an entire internal network or Intranet. Connection filters are particularly useful when using the Administration port. Depending on your network firewall configuration, you may be able to use a connection filter to further restrict administration access. A typical use might be to restrict access to the Administration port to only the servers and machines in the domain.

WebLogic Server provides a default connection filter called weblogic.security.net.ConnectionFilterImpl. This default connection filter accepts all incoming connections except the ones defined in your Administration Console as a Connection filter rule. You can write your own custom connection filter by implementing the classes in the weblogic.security.net package. This post will demonstrate the steps to configure Weblogic Connection Filters.
