Secure Mobile Access 12.4 Administration Guide

Configuring the Web Proxy Service

This section describes how to configure the service that manages access to Web resources. The Web proxy service provides Web proxy access, translated Web access, custom port mapped Web access, and custom FQDN mapped Web access.

To configure the Web proxy service

  1. In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > Services.

  2. In the Access Services section, under Web proxy service area, Configure. The Web Proxy Service page displays.

  3. On the General tab, select Enable HTTP compression if you want to compress HTML, XML, and CSS files before they are sent from the appliance to the client. This reduces the download size of Web pages accessed through the appliance, but may also affect system performance.

    Enabling compression may affect system performance.

  4. Configure Downstream Web resources:

    • If you want the Web proxy service to check the validity of certificates presented by back-end Web servers, select Validate SSL server certificates. If enabled, the appliance will make sure the CN in the certificate matches the host name and that the certificate is valid. Secure Mobile Access recommends enabling this feature if you are using downstream HTTPS.

    • To view details about the appliance’s root certificate listing CAs that issued certificates to back-end Web servers, or to import a certificate, click the SSL Settings link. For more information about managing CA certificates, see CA Certificates.

    For information about configuring Web application profiles, see Adding Web Application Profiles.
