  2. Add new Rule , You can add Source object [Combined Source] and Destination objects [Combined Destination] accordingly, Under Action (right click) --> Set --> New ---> Disable SSL Detection ---> Select Option "Traffic Tunneled over:" Select "HTTP Connect, SOCKS, TCP" ---> click OK --> Install Policy
