Cloud Hybrid Web Gateway - bypass for a certain domain / IP

We currently have an on premise Web Gateway server (or servers) which sync their policy to the cloud Web Gateway (hybrid configuration)

An issue we have recently encountered is we have a network that is only accessible between several organizations, i.e. it is not exposed to the Internet

When our users are on a VPN connection to our network we force them to go via the cloud Web Gateway

The issue is they then try to access a website on the network described above (in this case it doesn't have a domain name so let's just say and web gateway times out trying to reach the site (because it isn't Internet facing the McAfee cloud servers obviously can't reach it)

Is there a way in our Web Gateway policy that can then by synced to the cloud to set a bypass list of IPs/domains that then won't try to go through the proxy?

Dear Jround,


you can bypass destination and local IP addresses in MCP policy, this will redirect traffic to your VPN endpoint and require proper internal routing to reach mentioned destination. If you don't use MCP it would be helpful to understand how you redirect traffic to MWGCS.
