HTTP-Proxy allow or deny app

Hi Everyone,

I have a inbound rule in place fro my forward facing web-server and am tightning the policy down to only allow a few apps and a few default ports ssl and web-browsing

 

When i was looking at what traffic was hitting the rule, Isaw the following applications

 

SSL 443 = iexpected

web-browsing (80) =expected

 

however i am noticing

 

http-proxy on port 80

 

My Q.

Is the  HTTP-proxy application something I need to allow is this legitimate traffic , or is this something that should be denied ?

 

Regards

and thanks in advance

Paul

You won't need http-proxy.  This is when your users are trying to evade url filtering by using and outside proxy service.

 

You can find the detailed definitions in the applipedia on the web site or inside the web UI on the box.
