Configuring ProxyClient Web Filtering Auto-Detection
You want to configure ProxyClient to disable/delegate web filtering when traffic is intercepted by a ProxySG on the network.
You must meet following requirements before configuring ProxyClient to disable/delegate web filtering :
Web Filtering Auto-Detection works by setting policy that causes the ProxySG to respond with a custom header and value to requests from the ProxyClient. The custom header is "X-BCWF-License" and the value is the subscription username used on the ProxySG. When the ProxyClient sees this response, it becomes aware that a ProxySG is intercepting its traffic and therefore delegates all web filter processing to the ProxySG until the location changes (IP address or adapter change) or the ProxyClient is restarted.
To install local policy on a ProxySG that performs Web filtering for ProxyClients:
Important: If this policy does not take effect, check the formatting of the policy that you entered in the text editor. Make sure that the following rule within the policy is entered all on one line:
Any invalid line breaks in the rule cause it to match incorrectly and the ProxyClient will not delegate web filtering as expected.
If you have the use of multiple BCWF licenses on different ProxySG's throughout your environment, it is recommended that you include each one in your Web Filtering Auto-Detection policy. See FAQ2112 for more information.
