You would like to control all web traffic from a specific operating system (OS).
To control the traffic from specific operating systems, the ProxySG appliance must be able to detect it. This process depends on the client sending the request. Most browsers include OS in the user-agent field in the HTTP request header. For example:
GET / HTTP/1.1 Accept: text/html, application/xhtml+xml, */* Accept-Language: en-US User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive Host: microsoft.com
|The Platform token identifies the operating system and version. The example token indicates Windows 8.1.|
