- Padvish device control registered a tool connected to a computer and you wish to detect the type and the model of the tool.
- You wish to block/allow every type and model of a specific tool by using a Padvish control device.
To fix these requirements you need to be familiar with the Device ID structure.
The device ID is the thing that Padvish device control will log as the unique peripheral devices ID and according to this, also give you the possibility to define rules.
In the beginning, each Device ID has two parts named Vendor ID and Product ID (VID and PID) that included a 4 letters code that specifies the manufacturer and the product category:
In the above phrase, the red color is VID which is the symbol of the product manufacturer and the green color is PID which is the symbol of the product category. By searching this information in existed databases over the internet we can relate this codified number to the producer and the product. For instance, two following databases are usually proper:
By using the above information, it is specified that the device is produced by Samsung Co. and it is the category of Samsung Galaxy of this company.
Defining advanced rules of device control
To define advanced rules for device control that perform for a special type of peripheral devices, use the following method:
- Go to device control in Change client settings> Padvish Antivirus section
- Choose the type of the relevant device and set it on Advanced Rules. Click on the “You have*Advanced Rules”.
- Add a new rule in the opened window.
- Choose Containing for the Device ID field and put them in the front box of the Device ID which is involved VID and PID of the device. In the above example: VID_04E8&PID_6866\
- Choose a name for your rule and put the decision according to the case on Allow or Block.
- In this way, this rule just adapted with determined devices.
- Pay attention that in the Advanced Rule, rules are applied from top to bottom and the first rule that adapted with the device will be applied. Meanwhile, if the last rule is the type of “Block All”, all devices that do not adapt with none of the rules are considered to authorize.
