Non-Transparent

Post by FortifyIT » 30 Apr 2018 19:55

Hey

do we just turn off Transparent Mode to put it into regular proxy mode (i.e. setting browsers to go to whatever IP/DNS name for the proxy)?

Testing CG in Transparent mode now but want to set it up in Non-Transparent mode to test at client sites so we can then go live with this to provide secure browsing for our clients.

THanks
Mike

Hi,

When the forwarding proxy mode is activated (command mode web on), the non-transparent (or explicit) Web proxy mode is always enabled (and can't be deactivated). To deactivate the explicit forwarding proxy, you should deactivate the forwarding proxy mode (command mode web off)

Hi

I want to put CG into a colo datacenter with a static IP so I can point my clients to it to be used as a web proxy.

How would I go about setting up the NIC's? Would I only need to worry about setting the External NIC?

Thanks
Mike

Hi,

CacheGuard can only be implemented in a two arms configuration (with two IP addresses: one for the external and one for the internal). In your case ,you will need 2 public IP addresses in two distinct networks.

If having two public IP addresses is not an option, you should place your CacheGuard behind a firewall with NAT capabilities and implement the architecture represented in the attached diagram.

Best Regards,
