Hi all,

Have a clear OS box, 2 X NICS, running in Gateway Mode, Transparent Proxy configured, Content Filtering etc.

The issue that I'm having, is that any website that automatically re directs from http to https is then throwing an error - "Connection Failed"

Browsing to the https site directly shows no issue, and responds fine, its only the auto redirection from http to https.

This is starting to become very frustrating for the end users, has anyone got any advice to be able to resolve this please?

Thanks in advance.

TJ

    Yes, if you look at the screen shot, you can see its a Web Proxy error, yet i have NO block rules at all, its allowing everything out at this point in time.

    The screen shot also shows what happens when you visit http://google.com

    Ill try your other suggestions and see what i can find.

    Cheers

    I've not seen this behavior reported elsewhere. One thing to try is to load up some log viewers and watch your traffic to see if the error is content filter or proxy related. In two separate SSH sessions run the following (where 192.168.1.133 is the IP address of the workstation that is producing the error):

    tail -f /var/log/squid/access.log | grep 192.168.1.133
    tail -f /var/log/dansguardian/access.log | grep 192.168.1.133

    From here you should be able to see if there is some sort of 'Denied' policy going into effect.

    Also, does this happen with every http >> https redirect site? For example, does it happen when you go to http://google.com ?
