All URLs which are using not standard ports can't pass through MWG.

hi,

i have a misunderstanding about accepting non standard ports by the Mcafee Web Gateway 7.

my problem is when i entered a URL with a non standard port (like 7777), a different messages appear each time. sometime [server not found, Loading..., the proxy not receive any data].

is it the default by MWG to block these sites?

one of the non processed pages is http://ereg.gasco.ae:7003/

regards.

Re: All URLs which are using not standard ports can't pass through MWG.

Hello Ahmad,

MWG should not block these URLs by default. The port should not be interesting for MWG, unless there is a rule that looks for the port. Are you using a transparent setup? In transparent modes MWG by default only handles port 80 and 443. Other ports may be treated in a different way but should simply pass through.

I think the best way to find out why the connection fails is a packet capture created on MWG.

Best,

Andre

I have de same problem, but I can not find where I can change the configuration for allowing pass through in MWG. The configuration of my MWG is in simple proxy mode, Anybody has any idea how to use URLs with differen port than 80 or 443 for examle http://www.bancodeloja.fin.ec:8080/

Thanks in advanced for your help

Best,

Felix

Hello,

is MWG able to communicate to the internet on port 8080?

Is you connect to MWG via SSH and run

echo "GET / HTTP/1.1" | nc www.bancodeloja.fin.ec 8080

you should see somthing coming back from the remote server. If nothing comes back, most likely port 8080 is blocked for MWG by a firewall.

Best,

Andre
