Symantec Web Gateway (SWG) Implementation Guide network diagram for proxy mode does not indicate two separate networks are required.
Last Updated August 23, 2011
The SWG Implementation Guide 5.0 does not include the proxy mode into the Port connections for typical network configurations section and the diagram that represents proxy mode is not clear as to how the device should be connected.
All deployment modes where the proxy mode is involved (Proxy or Inline + Proxy) require the Management interface to be configured into a separate network.
The following is the port configuration required for Proxy mode:
Connect Management to
Connect Monitor to
Connect LAN to
Connect WAN to
Simple proxy mode configuration.
Port on a switch separated from the LAN network
Port on your LAN switch
The SWG Implementation Guide will be updated with this information on a future release.
