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.
To authenticate all HTTP sessions including non-browser applications such as cloud apps:
- Log in to IWSVA command line interface (cli) using the root account.
- Use vi editor to edit the /etc/iscan/intscan.ini file.
- Set the value of disable_app_www_authentication to “no”.
Save the file.
Restart the HTTP daemon using the command below:
# /etc/iscan/S99ISproxy stop && /etc/iscan/S99ISproxy start
