cookie authentication on mcafee web gateway gives rendering issue

Hi Guys,

I have configured Cookie Authentication login page rule set on the WCCP to use as transparent proxy for authentication on the client browers, all works fine however we are having issue with some web pages not loading properly and rendering and java, flash or ccs pages dont show up, and only text view web page comes up.

Is there a way to go to fix this issue or better way to have the rule set?

Cheers

Hi Paresh,

This is likley occurring because third party cookies are not enabled in the browser.

Keep in mind with cookie authentication, MWG must verify the cookie from the client on every request. If the cookie is not sent, then MWG will try to authenticate.

For this reason Authentication Server (Time IP Based Session) is used instead of Cookie auth. See our guide on deploment methods and recommended auth methods:

Best,

Jon

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the reponse, we are using the cookie authentication because the client requirement is that they want staff to bring there own devices such as (iPads, Android tabs and phones) and they want to use the corporate wireless network to access the internet. and also they  want authentication set for user, so that there a log track on what the staff has browsed for audit purposes.

Is there any other or better authentication method that can sit with such scenario of bringing your own device to connect to network and also authenticate to the Active Directory.

Cheers

Paresh
