Cisco ASA WebVPN - disable http gzip compression for a custom web content
I am working on a Cisco ASA WebVPN v8.4(4)1 and Anyconnect v3.0.08057 nomad solution for a customer.
I use an external application to manage the nomad user connection to the corporate (Cisco ASA) VPN gateway and I have to check a HTTPS page is joinable to ensure the gateway is available before establishing the Anyconnect VPN conenction.
To do so, I add a basic custom page to the webvpn portal using Web Contents feature stored in /+CSCOU+/check.html.
Using any standard web browser, it is great: I can access the file before any authentication and verify the content is the one awaited.
But my external application do not support gzip compression and every imported Web Content into the webvpn portal is returned with gzip compression whereas I disabled HTTP compression in DlftGrpPolicy.
I tried to import an APCF XML directive to the webvpn config but it seems not applied when accessing an imported web content before any webvpn connection established.
Is there a way to disable gzip compression for imported web content in ASA webvpn ?
