SSL filtering behind a firewall / proxy


Recommended Posts

I'm tightening up the web security at our business. I started by implementing Protocol filtering (regular and SSL)  and web control.

I've moved on to add a squid proxy server (nothing to do with ESET) on our gateway and then blocking direct outbound access from the clients.

When I do this ESET's SSL filtering breaks SSL connections in Internet Explorer, interestingly Chrome still works.

If I allow direct access to the following addresses outbound through the firewall....


the SSL filtering works again. I found this out by monitoring the gateway firewall logs.

I suppose my question is.... is there any way to proxy these connections and/or shouldn't these checks be done by or through the local remote administration server?

I hope this makes some sense,
