Use proxy only on certain URL's

Hi,

I wanted to know if this was possible? We currently have an issue with 1 of our online services and it turns out to be a routing issue between Virgin and BT. The server seems to create 2 connections and when it is one the first connection it is fine, but the 2nd connection just grinds uploads to a snails pace. We found that if we proxy through a German server this company set up for us we can get the service perfectly fine.

I wondered if it was possible to get PA to do this just for this one specific URL?

Hello

Current firewall does not have HTTP proxy and do edit HTTP header. There is a existing feature request "HTTP Proxy Support" regarding the support for same. Please request your SE to vote for this feature request to increase priority.

Please let me know if it helps u

If the URL always resolves to the same public IP, and you had more than one route for internet traffic, you could build a PBF rule to have traffic coming/going from/to the website, be funneled through a different internet access route.

Would this be a possible solution for your network scenario?
