PAN as proxy destination?

L0 Member

Does anyone know if I can configure a web browser to use the PAN device as the proxy?  We used to have an ISA as that proxy but after installing the PAN's (two 500's in HA) the ISA waqs moved to a DMZ and only helps with incoming connections to things like webmail and sharepoint.

PAN devices ARE NOT Web Proxies and can't be used for that (is something belonging to "What PAN firewall is NOT": is not a Proxy, is not a WAF, is not an UTM) 🙂


Any roadmap to add this feature? It is good selling point if End user want to replace their Proxy server originally use as URL filtering device.

Check Point FW can act as Web proxy server in R75.40. check_point_web_proxy.png

Hi using proxies with PAN only masquerades information flows assing through the PAN. We've replaced our websence system (proxy) and are routing directy to the internet through the PAN. This allows us to see and more importantly control all data flows.


I agree...

If you still need a forward-proxy (can be handy for cases where you dont want to have public ip's flowing around in your core and by that be able to setup IDS to sound an alarm if such packet submerges anyway) you should use a device dedicated for this work.

Examples (depending on your needs, demands (assurance and stuff) and walletsize etc):

Most of the forward-proxies can be setup with keep-source meaning that you can still use user/panagent in your PA device (along with url-categories, av, ssl termination etc) if you setup like:

client <-> forward-proxy <-> PA <-> Internet
