    • Updated:
    • 27 Jul 2015
    • Product/Version:
    • InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance 6.0
    • InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance 6.5
    • Platform:
    • Bare Metal N/A
    • Virtual Appliance 5.1
Summary

Internet access is not only for web browsing, but also for business-related cloud service or apps. Since the default IWSVA configuration setting in /etc/iscan/intscan.ini does not authenticate HTTP sessions of non-browser apps. It typically does not respond to the user authentication requests from web gateways.

Even without authentication, IWSVA still reverts to Global Policy, or any policies without user information. IWSVA still provides both security and service as a proxy. Administrator can configure the product after installation.

    disable_app_www_authentication=no

  4. Save the file.

  5. Restart the HTTP daemon using the command below:

    # /etc/iscan/S99ISproxy stop && /etc/iscan/S99ISproxy start
