CE 565 generating huge traffic

Unanswered Question
Apr 24th, 2007


We have a CE565 which was working fine for some time now. Since the last few weeks the ISP is complaining that the internet links are getting choked and the IP responsible for throwing huge traffic is the IP of the CE. This also happens when i dont have any client connecting to the CE...Only the public ip is configured on the CE. I wanted to use the CE just like a proxy. Can someone please help me regarding this behaviour of the CE and guide me on configuring the CE as a proxy. the current config is attached.

I have this problem too.

It is very possible someone on the outside is using your CE. We often tell customers that they need to setup ACL's on their routers to control who has access to the Content Engines. Once folks (hackers)on the outside get the ip of the CE, they can then use it for proxy, etc..

You may want to setup acls or access lists on the router to restrict what is getting to the CE.
