Why permitiing web-brosing is required while permitting custom http-based apps?

L3 Networker


I was testing custom http based apps, and in this context i created a custom app based on a signature in the host field of the http header. The problem is that it function properly only if i permit the app web-brosing in the same rule. By logging at the begining and at the end of the session i noticed that whene session starts, the traffic was identified as web brosing, and then it switches to be identified as the custom app. Also whene i dont permit web-brosing, the traffic will be dropped and the firewall is no longer able to identifie the custom app. So is it required to permit web-brosing to get this kind off apps to work, it is not souhaitable in my case, so is there any solution to this problem?

Thank you all.

I'm sorry, I did not know these kinds of questions where unwanted in the forums. However, I never asked for release dates.
