I understand this is a content networking furom. But I would like to ask some suggestions on our current deployment with CE507 using Secure Computing-SmartFilter as URL filter server.
We have already already configured our CE507 and is already running. Now we are deploying smartfilter for URL filtering but it does not work with username base access. We have tried configuring it by IP address authentication and t work fine.
But deploying to look-up for Ms active derictory for username, the smartfilter does not work.
Hi! thanks for the reply. We have already enabled the CE for Smartfilter. We have done this by selecting SmartFilter on the "Caching-URL Filter" menu.
On the SmartFilter, we have set the plugin as Cisco CE. Then for the directory resources, we have set it to support Micrososft active directory, create a user group and associate it with internal users on the SmartFilter. The group and usersname is the same on the MS active directory. Then finaly, we attach internet access policy.
The settings mentioned above does not work. As of now, the smartFilter is running based on the IP address as user. but our company policy requires us to use username instead of IP address for URL filter.
We think, we miss some settings on the CE or SmartFilter but we have no idea where. Your valuable feedback on this will be again highly appreiciated.
Good day! We tried your suggestion, we enable the CE to support LDAP HTTP user authentication on the CE GUI. also, define the active derictory server on the smartfilter directory resources. define username on the smartfilter, attach it to a group and attach the group into allow all policy.
When we try to access the internet browser. Although the CE asks for username password, we were still not able to access the internet.
We are using ACNS software release 5.0.5 and smartfilter version 3.1.2.
Also, i would like to clarify in the Base DN field on the CE LDAP page and Smartfilter directory resources page. Is it the our domain name?
I would recommend that we get the functions working separately, then use them together. So, we should
1) Get HTTP request authentication working
2) Get SmartFilter working
3) Use them together
The Base DN is usually your domain name, in format:
If you are having problems getting authentication working, please send me your configuration and output from 'debug http all' when the authentication fails. Note: I am assuming you are testing this in a lab -- 'debug http all' is resource intensive).
Also, as I mentioned in my previous post, you do not need to configure individual users in SmartFilter.
