The ProxyAV or ProxySG with the Blue Coat Web Filter (BCWF) are configured with the IP address of 188.8.131.52 in the download address field of the appliance instead of a DNS name. Because the address is hard coded, the ProxyAV and ProxySG will not be able to download update files.
Blue Coat relocated a legacy data center, resulting in updated IP addresses.
