MWG7 and SSL Scanning

This is more of a generic question about how to enable and troubleshoot SSL Scanning.  I am able to go to and download the test virus from their HTTPS link but not the HTTP link. What do I do to enable scanning on the encrypted file and how do I find out why it is not working?

Re: MWG7 and SSL Scanning

You need to enable the rule set "SSL Scanner".  You then need to generate a cercificate from the Web Gateway to install in all of your users' browsers. 

How are you sending traffic to the Web Gateway?

Helps to send all traffic to the proxy when you are doing explicit mode, not just HTTP. Everything was working correctly except my testing process.....
