Problem: New Watchguard X550e won’t allow activeX and Java downloads…
I just installed a new X550e firebox, and now users are not able to download java script, or even java exe (I even tried downloading directly from the sun/java website)….I’ve searched Watchguard tech support site, and followed the ‘allow application’ in the firewall ‘Http Proxy” proxy exceptions method, but still getting a denial. I’m using XML file with watchguard system manager 10.0 interface. I had a Firebox III 500 using .cfg files previously, and since there is no conversion tool between these two configuration methods, setup has been a bear. So many settings…If you could help point me in the right direction, it would be GREATLY appreciated. Getting tech support from Watchguard directly can take a long time.
getting this when trying to download java direct from site:
Response denied by WatchGuard HTTP proxy.
Reason: body content-type denied rule=’Windows EXE/DLL’
Solution: New Watchguard X550e won’t allow activeX and Java downloads…
No problem, we all are here to help and learn! 🙂
Add service as usual [in Policy Manager; click Edit->Add Policy] and from packet filters select “HTTP” and click Add button; if you are creating service for outbound traffic [from trusted network to internet]; there is nothing else to configure; click OK; click Close button to close Add policies window.
If you need service for inbound traiffc (from internet to your web server which is on the trusted network); then configure the service incoming part same as proxyHTTP.
Please implement and update; also let know if you need more details.
