Exclude administrative downloads from matching forwarding policy on ProxySG and ASG
Last Updated January 14, 2019
In chaining proxy environment, how can I force downstream proxy administrative download traffic (such as Web Filter, Cache Pulse, Appliance Certificate Request, License Key Automatic Installation and etc.) to go direct to the internet without being forwarded to the upstream Symantec ProxySG or Advanced Secure Gateway (ASG)?
The following option will ensure the downstream proxy to connect directly to the Internet for administrative download
From Management Console GUI, select the Configuration > Forwarding > Global Defaults tab
Configure the General Settings and unchecked the use forwarding for administrative downloads option
This option is enabled by default once the forwarding host is created
The prerequisite is downstream ProxySG and ASG must be able to perform DNS lookup directly towards external Symantec domains.
