Only bus users with the 
Probe Security
 permission can manage probe security settings.

Manage Probe Security in Admin Console
You can modify the following probe security settings:
  • Access
     - The level of bus access that the probe has--
    open
    read
    write
    admin
    , or 
    super
    .
  • IP mask
     - The IP addresses where the probe security setting applies. The IP mask field allows for the use of Perl regular expressions. A wildcard (*) in this field allows access to all systems in the domain.
    If a probe is running on an IP address that does not match the IP mask that you enter, the probe is not allowed to start up and log in to the bus.
