SGS 5420 how to forward SSL / 443 (or other) secure ports

Created: 30 Mar 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments

Hey all,

We've been trying to setup a NAT and firewall rule that allows SSL / secure html browsing through the SGS firewall.  I've read there were issues with 443 due to the clientless VPN listener - but we're not using it.  I've also found that SSL (port 443) is closely tied to the HTML proxy service and this seems to be a hurdle as well.  This entire setup is for OWA access on a Win2008 box with Exchange 2007.

Is there a way to successfully forward 443 through this device?  If not - does using a non-standard port (444) work (we still seem to be having issues with this configuration as well)...

Would like to discuss here.  Thanks.
