Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

The release notes from Web Gateway 7.2 shows the following enhancement:

When access to a web site under FTP requires authentication, a page with credential entry fields is

sent to the user.

Should this option works out of the box? Do I have to enable it somewhere?

Hello,

this option should indeed work out of the box for FTP over HTTP.

Re: Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

Hello,

it will work out fo the box for clean installs only, because this feature is part of the error templates and these will not be migrated on an MWG update.

Bye

Re: Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

Hi Jan

Thank you for your help, it works now! Maybe we should import the language packs from 7.2, just to be sure that all enhancements are in? Of course, after this you have to reapply all custom modification's ....

Thanks,

Heinz

Re: Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

I must say I feel this is a bad design.  The templates should be updated during an update!

One of two things should be put in place to avoid destroying any customization.

  1. Move basic text custom content out of templates into placeholder files that are pulled into templates are runtime.
  2. Probably more feasible is to import all new templates and overwrite only the old ones that haven't been customized.  The customized ones should be flagged and / or renamed and a difference report generated.

Re: Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

Unfortunately this isn't as easy as ot appears to be! There could be cross dependenices between the different files (for exmaple the js files that are included into some templates).....

Re: Webgateway 7.2 Enhancements

Ok, so I imported the file into our MWG 7.2 box and still have the same result.  It does not prompt you and you get:

FTP Communication Problem

McAfee Web Gateway has sent this command to the FTP server: PASS anonymous@domain.com
The server has sent this non-expected reply: Invalid userid/password (code=530)

or this:

FTP Communication Problem

McAfee Web Gateway has sent this command to the FTP server: PASS anonymous@domain.com
The server has sent this non-expected reply: Not logged in. (code=530)
