Web Gateway 7.3 Chat Proxys

What are the IM and chat proxys used for? I've done a search but haven't found much. I assume it's to block chat traffic, is that right?

Re: Web Gateway 7.3 Chat Proxys

You can use MWG as an IM proxy, which means by modifying firewall, routing and/or DNS configuration you enfore your users IM clients (Yahoo messenger, ...) to talk to MWG rather than the real servers on the Internet. Once this is done you can do some stuff like authenticating users and allow/block access, etc. for the IM protocols.
