MSIR.0293 (Num) JANUS (subcmd) (rule type)(S) for PORT (portname) pre-empted
This informational message indicates that a JANUS rule has been applied to the indicated port and that the rule has preempted num previous rules applied to the port. An old rule would be preempted if parameters specified in the new rule would prevent the old rule from ever being examined. In the case of JANUS WEB rules, the parameters include the URL.
subcmd indicates the JANUS rule command issued: WEB, CLSOCK, or SRVSOCK. rule_type indicates the type of rule being established, for example, ALLOW or ON.
The JANUS rules are always evaluated in most recently issued order.
Due to this, a JANUS WEB command where a wildcard URL contains the old URL as a subset will generally cause the old rule to be pre-empted. For example, the command
JANUS WEB WEBPORT TYPE * TEXT/PLAIN would pre-empt the command
JANUS WEB WEBPORT TYPE *.HTML TEXT/HTML, because the URLs that match
*.HTML are a subset of the URLs that match asterisk (*).
