Google Web Tools (GWT) Fail with PIX and ASA and work with Sonicwall

Unanswered Question
Feb 17th, 2010


Normal desktop user connecting to a URL that incorporates Google WEB Tools (GWT).

With either a PIX, 7.2 or various ASA units, the browser screen times out.

With SonicWall and Checkpoint firewalls, the page displays normally.

All communications are HTTPS.

Simply put, it works with SonicWall and Checkpoint, the page hangs when connecting to the Internet via a Cisco PIX or ASA.

Surely someone has run into this before?



I have this problem too.

The ASA should not inspect or drop https traffic, it should just treat like http.Trying behind my ASA they come up fine.

There is something else happening in your setup.

Check logs and captures to start with.

I hope it helps.
