The Transparent Bridge settings are part of the settings for configuring the proxy functions of a Secure Web Gateway appliance in Transparent Bridge mode.
For information about this network mode and how to configure it, see About the Transparent Bridge Mode and Configure the Transparent Bridge Mode.
Settings for configuring the Transparent Bridge mode.
Provides a list for entering the ports that requests for web access sent by users of your network are redirected to.
Sets the priority (ranging from 0 to 99) that an appliance takes in directing the data packets that are sent in a request by a client.
The highest value prevails. 0 means an appliance is what is known as a scanning node, which never directs data packets, but only scans them.
You can only use this option to configure a node as a scanning node (priority = 0) or a director node (priority > 0). Differences in node priorities > 0 are not evaluated.
After configuring node priorities greater than 0 for multiple appliances in Transparent Bridge mode, you need to watch their behavior to find out which has actually become the director node that directs data packets.
Specifies the source IP address of an appliance that directs data packets when sending heartbeat messages to other appliances.
|IP spoofing (HTTP, HTTPS)||
When selected, the appliance keeps the client IP address that is sent with a request as the source address and uses it in communication with the requested web server under various protocols.
The appliance does not verify whether this address matches the host name of the request.
|IP spoofing (FTP)||
When selected, the appliance communicates with a file server under the FTP protocol in the same way as under the HTTP or HTTPS protocol to perform IP spoofing
For active FTP, this option must be enabled.
Port Redirects – List Entry
The following table describes an entry in the list of port redirects.
Specifies the name of the protocol used for sending and receiving requests.
|Original destination ports||
Specifies the ports that redirected requests must originally be sent to if they are to be redirected.
|Destination proxy port||
Specifies the port that requests are redirected to.
|Source IP based exceptions||
Excludes requests that have been received from clients with the specified IP addresses from redirecting.
|Destination IP based exceptions||
Excludes requests that are sent to a destination with the specified IP address from redirecting.
Optional 802.1Q VLANs
Lists the IDs of the network interfaces for VLAN traffic that are configured.
Provides a plain-text comment on a port redirect.
