Client traffic stops when enabling interception for the traffic
Last Updated May 13, 2017
Client traffic stops when enabling the interception for the traffic in an inline proxy deployment.
When the ProxySG responds to the SYN packet coming from the client, it will follow the routing configuration, therefore, the ProxySG will send the SYN-ACK to the static route match or the default gateway.
Since, in an inline deployment, the default gateway will either be the upstream router/firewall or the managment interface subnet, the return traffic will never reach the client. Therefore, you will need to make sure that the return-to-sender option is enabled for the inbound traffic. That feature will overwrite the routing table, as the ProxySG will use the same interface on which it got the SYN packet to send the return traffic to the client.
To check that the return-to-sender option is enabled for inbound:
if it is disabled for the return traffic, use the following CLI command to enable it:
(config)#return-to-sender inbound enable
