Manage policies Page
Use this page to create a single upstream proxy or multiple upstream proxies.
Navigation: WEB PROXY > Upstream proxy > Manage policies.
|Default upstream proxy||Determines the default proxy, used when upstream proxies are not available, not configured or not allowed by policies.|
|Allow direct connections||
Allows direct connections to origin servers. If allowed, direct connections will be made as a final fallback if the default proxy is unavailable or not configured. If not selected, it prevents web requests from being forwarded directly to their origin servers when other permissible upstream proxies are unavailable.
Note: The Allow direct connections option eliminates the last option for forwarding requests in failure scenarios. Therefore, you should only use it to implement strict conditions that all traffic go through an upstream proxy.
|Leak client IP with X-forwarded-For header||Sends the originating IP addresses of client requests upstream.|
