infinite proxy loop

Jump to solution

Some of the business users are getting the warning "infinite proxy loop the request should not be filtered more than once"

 

According to the article:

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/web-gateway-7.8.1-product-guide-unmanaged/page/GUID-DA63F3C5-0377-425...

this configuration can be deactivated from the appliance,


What would be the negative impact if I deactivate the configuration?
 Any different recommendations to avoid this?

Why can't I view this document/page?

No clue what they're doing with permissions.

Uploaded is a copy of that document that a McAfee support engineer forwarded to me within the context of a service request.

I'm guessing it's okay to share this, if not please remove it.

But a lot of knowledge just got lost through these forum movements and someone should really be restoring it.
