Using next hop Proxy

Hi,

How to redirect the access to a site via another proxy.
Example:
If URL = xx then  redirect the access via the proxy A (A is in NexthopProxy) otherwise continue.

Nota: all URL are in a list (wildcard Expression (*.gide.com))

Thanks

Re: Using next hop Proxy

I wonder how the Next Hop Proxy behaves in case of failure. If I have 2 upstream proxies but both fail then what? Do we proccess next rule in policy? Of course I have the Action set to Stop Cycle so with everything ok the traffic goes to the next hop and no more rules are proccessed. But how does it work when all next hop servers fails?

Re: Using next hop Proxy

Hello,

if you configure two upstreams and both fail MWG will present an error message. MWG will not try to bypass all proxies and go direct in case all next-hops are down.

Best,

Andre
