Unable to admin MWG(or connect to local resources) unless IP is placed in IE exceptions list

Jump to solution

I am unable to admin the MWG over http:  unless there is an exception in Internet Explorer .  I suspect that this is the case for all local resources.  Is there a way to allow MWG not try to proxy local resources?

Here is the connection error:

Cannot Connect 
The proxy could not connect to the destination in time. 
URL: http://xx.xx.xx.xx:4711/Konfigurator/request

That is expected behavior. You dont want to "Proxy the Proxy (UI)". So an IE exception would be necessary.

This is expected because the client will make the request through port 9090 (the proxy), so the Web Gateway will do what it does and attempt to proxy it, but then it will fail.

Thanks Jon.  This is the way that I suspected the MWG to work.  My question is there a way for MWG to route those requests back to the gateway?
