ProxySG Software - SGOS
You want to know how to integrate Socialware with the ProxySG appliance.
To integrate Socialware:
Create a forwarding host for Socialware. In the Management Console, select Configuration > Forwarding > Forwarding Host. Click New . For Host, enter proxy.socialware.com and select Proxy for the Type. Under Ports, select HTTP and enter 3130. All requests (HTTP/HTTPS) will be forwarded to this port. Note: Verify port 3130 with Socialware support team. Usually this is the port is being used for forwarding. Also this port has to be open on the firewall/GW/router for outbound communication.
Scheme - any ; Host - facebook.com; condition - contains
Scheme - any ; Host - twitter.com; condition - contains
Scheme - any ; Host - linkedin.com; condition - contains
One of the configuration is shown below:
Name the new object Socialware_Destinations. Add the new server URL objects to the right.
In the new rule leave the source as Any (unless this is applied to AD user group or restricted by Client IPs).
On the forwarding layer rule, right click in the Action column and select Set > New > Forwarding.
Select the newly added forwarding host and add it to the right.
Name the object SocialwareForward.
Click OK and then click Install.
If the proxy deployment is transparent (WCCP/Inline transparent), add an SSL interception layer (Policy > Add SSL Intercept Layer). In the Destination column, right click and select Set > Server Certificate Category.
Add Social Networking from the left. Click OK.
In the Action column, right click and select Set.
Select New > Enable SSL Interception. Without this, transparent proxy cannot forward those URLs as most of the social network website operates over SSL.
Click OK > OK, and then click Install.
This should complete all the necessary configuration. If you still have issues after performing the previous steps, please verify that all the URLs are getting forwarded to forwarding host properly by taking a policy trace (see 000011446).
