Configuring Web Resource Filtering
Web resource filtering enables extra processing for defined IP addresses and ports to detect HTTP traffic. When
HTTP requests are found, policy and single sign-on logic are applied to the Web server connections.
Web resource filtering allows you to enforce the same URL-based rules in tunnel sessions that administrators
define for ExtraWeb. It also allows you to leverage single sign-on functionality when accessing Web applications.
When Web resource filtering is not enabled, the available policies for Web access and tunnel access are not
equivalent. The Web access cases can evaluate URL policy for all translated access and HTTP access for Web
proxy and port map clients. For users connected via a tunnel, the IP layer redirection only permits policies based
on IP address. In deployments where multiple Web addresses or namespaces are hosted on a single Web server,
all Web content is reachable at a single IP address or pool of addresses. Basing policy on just the IP layer does
not permit the administrator to enforce policy distinctions between the multiple namespaces. Enabling Web
resource filtering allows policies to use URL-based rules in addition to IP-based rules for tunnel sessions.
To configure Web resource filtering
In the AMC, navigate to System Configuration > Services.
In the Access Services section, under Network tunnel service area, Configure. The Network Tunnel Service page displays.
In the Web Resource Filtering section, click Edit. The Tunnel Web Policy page displays.
- Select the Enable web resource filtering checkbox to cause the tunnel service to check all client traffic at
ports that may contain Web network traffic.
