Director unable to connect to ProxySG (ICMP ping disabled)
Blue Coat Director is unable to connect to the ProxySG
Blue Coat Director will use ICMP to ping the ProxySG before attempting to connect to it. If ICMP is not being passed on the network, then ping will fail and the Director will not attempt to communicate to the proxies even though all the TCP protocols documented in KB3457 are able to pass.
The resolution is to enable ICMP ping on the network. Currently there is no workaround for the issue. If you are not able to enable ICMP ping on your network, please contact your Blue Coat Sales Engineer (SE) and submit a feature request (FR) to have Director function without ICMP being enabled on the network.
NOTE1: For details on what Command Line Interface ( CLI) comamnds are sent to the the SG when you push a profile out, see FAQ1177

NOTE3: For a explanation on why there is a webserver appearing on later versions of Director, see KB4165
