We just purchased a PA3050 to replace our Cisco ASA's and a BlueCoat Proxy. We have been doing a header rewrite for youtube for schools with the Bluecoat for over a year now and our staff and students will expect this functionality to continue. This is definitely going to cause some major issues for us if we are no longer able to achieve this with the PA firewall. I'm hoping we didn't make a bad choice going with PA but it's to late for us to turn back now. This was pretty much a standard feature in most of the firewalls we evaluated. I find it hard to believe that PA can't even do a simple url redirect. Hopefully PA addresses this oversight soon if they want to continue expanding sales into Education.
