Our MCP detects a proxy (McAfee Web gateway) is up and tries to get an answer from this url in the Internet: http://.....MCP.txt. If it does not receive any answer ( what is going to happen when Internet is down), it only remains in standby state waiting…and traffic is not redirected to any other proxy ( the backup McAfee Web Gateway).. The MCP does nothing in this situation.
The ePO only detects a failure in the proxy using ping (icmp)and not testing the service port. Can anyone please share some insight on how to redirect the traffic to the backup proxy when Internet is down ?
