About the Advanced and Extended Proxy Settings
In addition to configuring network modes and protocols for proxies on Web Gateway, you can use advanced settings to configure functions like IP spoofing or the maximum number of client connections. You can also extend proxy configuration to include DNS and DLX services.
The common web cache on Web Gateway is also enabled as part of the proxy settings.
Advanced settings are available for configuring various proxy functions and parameters. Additionally, there are advanced settings that apply only to the network mode that has been selected. Settings for timeouts are also provided.
- Advanced settings — Include settings for configuring advanced proxy functions and parameters, for example, the maximum number of connections that are available for communication between clients and a proxy or the maximum amount of data that is transmitted on a connection.
- Advanced Outgoing Connection settings — Include settings for configuring the use of IP spoofing with any of the network modes that can be selected for running proxies.
- Timeouts for HTTP(S), FTP, ICAP, IFP, SOCKS and UDP — Include settings for timeouts, for example, to limit the time interval that elapses between accepting a client connection and receiving the first request over this connection.
You can extend proxy configuration to configure settings for services that provide additional data to Web Gateway.
- DNS settings — Include settings for sending queries to a DNS (Domain Name System) server and for caching responses.
- Data Exchange Layer settings — Include settings for a timeout on a connection to a DXL (Data Exchange Layer) server and the topics that the DXL service is to send information about.
