This issue has been solved. See solution.


Already in production - symantec web gateway 8950

Configuring - symantec webgateway 8450

Web gateway  version -

Mode - both are configured as proxy.

We have 8950 appliance configured and its in production.

I am right now configuring 8450 appliance, i have assigned a lan and management IP for 8450 appliance Eg: and After which instead of connecting 8450 aplliance to the firewall i connected 8450 appliance to the lan and gave access for 8450 to access internet ( full access) through 8950 appliance. I was able to successfull reach

Symantec threat center

But if i enter the proxy ip of 8450 appliance on my computer and access internet, i am not able to access internet. The port for the porxy are different on both 8950 - 3128 and 8450 -3129.

Can symantec webgateway be set up like how i have done it? if so why am i able to access internet from the device but not from the internet.

Nopes, I'm afraid the SWGs do not support proxy chaining.
