I would like to get some more information on how the Proxy Bypass works. I have an internal site that the users need to get to and needs to bypass the proxy to work correctly. I found some documentation but it is some what sparse. The site URL looks like this http://server1/welcome1.asp It is my understanding that proxy bypass uses path mask with a wild* card but there is now mask in the url link above. Is there no way I can get this site to bypass the proxy using this command. Below is the documentation I found on the command.
Use proxy bypass for applications and web resources that work better with minimum content rewriting. The proxy-bypass command determines how to treat specific web applications that travel through the security appliance.
You can use this command multiple times. The order in which you configure entries is unimportant. The interface and path mask or interface and port uniquely identify a proxy bypass rule.
If you configure proxy bypass using ports rather than path masks, depending on your network configuration, you might need to change your firewall configuration to allow these ports access to the security appliance. Use path masks to avoid this restriction. Be aware, however, that path masks can change, so you might need to use multiple pathmask statements to exhaust the possibilities.
A path is everything in a URL after the .com or .org or other types of domain name. For example, in the URL www.mycompany.com/hrbenefits,hrbenefits is the path. Similarly, for the URL www.mycompany.com/hrinsurance, hrinsurance is the path. If you want to use proxy bypass for all hr sites, you can avoid using the command multiple times by using the * wildcard as follows: /hr*.
