SonicOS 7 Rules and Policies

Bypass DPI

You can use the Bypass DPI action to increase performance over the network if you know that the content being accessed is safe. For example, this might be the case if your company has a corporate video that you want to stream to company employees over HTTP by having them access a URL on a Web server. As you know the content is safe, you can create an App Rules policy that applies the Bypass DPI action to every access of this video. This ensures the fastest streaming speeds and the best viewing quality for employees accessing the video.

Only two steps are needed to create the policy

  1. Define a match object for the corporate video using a match object type of HTTP URI Content:

    The leading slash (/) of the URL should always be included for Exact Match and Prefix Match types for URI Content match objects. You do not need to include the host header, such as www.company.com, in the Content field.
