Configure MWG as upstream proxy

Jump to solution

Hi all,

How can i configure an MWG as upstream proxy?'

I have a proxy squid that send request to MWG

at the moment I've used this rule on top:

Skip Authorization for Client IPs That Are in List Allowed IPs

(Client.ip is in list Allowed IPs) - Action: Stop Rule Set

but doesn't work

when client navigate through squid proxy has an  authentication pop-up

thanks a lot

kind regards

Hello,

what source IP are you trying to skip? The IP of the client or the Squid? If you want to skip the IP of the Squid "Client.IP" is not the property you are looking for but Connection.IP should hold the IP of the Squid. Client.IP reads the client IP address from X-Authenticated-For headers injected by Squid.

Best,

Andre

I have tried connection.IP and works good

anyway I have a lot of latency when we navigate through squid proxy.

is there a best practice (or some suggestion) to set-up both appliances (Squid and MWG) to work togheter in the best way?

thanks a lot

Hello,

there is not really a best practice I am aware of. If Squid works fine when accessed by the browser it should run fine with MWG in between. There is no setting that causes/solves delays, if delays/latency occurs something is not correct and needs to be fixed.

Best,

Andre
