Proxy Setup and config

Today i have tested the function proxy with some problem.
Information about the sistem and configuration (server):
Nethserver 6.6 (RC1)
Double Lan card (one for red zone and one for green zone)
Proxy enabled with authentication
Antivirus web enabled
Filter content enabled (i’d like block the download of file with exe extension)
Client setup:
OS: Win 8.1
Browser: FireFox 30.0.3
Ip config:
Lan ip for work in green zone,
Gateway and dns: ip of server on green zone.
I have added exe extension on a block (filter content area) but if a try to download some exe file the block doesn’t work.
On firefox if i setup the browser for check in auto the proxy configuration i have permission to navigate in internet with no user and password.
Some help?

Hello sitz,
with your setup work great… the filter now is up… but If i setup my browser for check in auto the proxy configuration, i’m enabled to navigate with no authentication… on iexplorer and firefox to… and firefox completely ignore the web filter…
Could y try that? and after that i will need to check this setup for some other browser… for 1st crohome…
I read around that is not easy to prevent or limit the navigation on this browser

43 pages of log… have y some place where i can post my log on txt file?

Hi @esseltre84 have you tried to check option in the image below?

Enabling HTTP and HTTPS ports block even if clients have gateway and dns configured they cannot bypass the proxy.
I have tried with IE, Firefox and Chrome and in my case works fine.

Let me know.

hi! i try to create and test NS Proxy but i need to configure each Computer or Browser to push to my proxy there is a way without config the each computer or browser?

Thank you :smile:

You don’t need to configure every computer to use proxy.
Just set the browser for auto detection, usualy on default.
