Users see a pop-up window requesting credentials when the Unified Agent (UA) is configured with proxy settings to contact the Web Security Service (WSS). The local proxy is also configured with web authentication and intercepts the initial request to client.threatpulse.net. Then the local proxy requests the UA client to authenticate.
Users receive an authentication pop-up window similar to the following:
Web Security Service
To bypass the authentication request pop-up, install the following policy into the proxy Local policy file.
On the ProxySG appliance:
url.domain=client.threatpulse.net authenticate(no) ALLOW
url.domain=ctc.threatpulse.com authenticate(no) ALLOW
