ISA 2006 proxy replacement

I want to use my PA as a proxy for the internet and want to remove my current  ISA 2006 proxy server. I was curious what methods others are using and if you have any detailed step by step instruction how to configure this.

Paloalto is not a proxy. To use us as a replacement for a proxy, you would create rules that allow "application = web-browsing" and "application = ssl" and apply a URL filtering profile and an antivirus profile. You can enable SSL Decryption to act as a "man in the middle" and inspect encrypted files to protect against malware.

hi InfoTech,

our company was also using TMG/ISA. We replaced them with the PA. To replace the proxy with PA you have to do following:

1) Route internet traffic to the PA (ip route static "PA-GATEWAY-INTERFACE-IP")

2) Remove from your Web-Browser ANY proxy settings (IE: internet options -> Connections -> LAN Settings). This can be done easily with GPO.

You need only your proxy, if you want to use it as a reverse proxy. Or you can use a IIS as a ARR Application Request Routing : The Official Microsoft IIS Site

I am doing my proxy by GPO not by adding the proxy information into the web browser.  So did you create groups on your PA? I wanted to give some groups full access to anything and limited to others how did you do that?


we created some AD Groups and added them in the firewall policy (domain/Group-Name).

You need to configure the User-ID Agent (Install the agent on any server or use the agentless User-ID on your PA). Also you have to add your AD Groups in the "Group Mapping Settings". You will find some documentation here in the forum....

Okay I already set up the agentless user-id on the pa and am able to add groups in the group mapping settings. So is the next step to create security policies? Is it possible to make a no proxy rule, limited access and no access groups can it be that granular? If so how do you do it?

it's quite difficult to explain. but read the admin guide:

And I also don't know what you want to restrict. There are so many ways to restrict and allow internet traffic. With URL Filtering, allow application, data filtering and so on...

Thanks I will take a look
