Can the ProxySG appliance enforce policy decisions based on the "X-Forwarded-For" header?


<< Back to Knowledge Search

Solution

Overview

Yes, it is possible to write policy decisions based on the X-Forward-For header, provided that this header exists on arrival to the proxy. 

The most efficient method is to include the condition in the local policy file:

  request.header.X-Forwarded-For="test"

Replacing test with the appropriate value.

You can also use the VPM: select the Source object and set it to New > Add Request Header Object. Add the X-Forwarded-For header.
