ADC Update WAF Signatures using proxy?

Recommended Posts



Can anyone confirm if there is a viable solution to configure the auto-update WAF signatures on ADC using a proxy instead of going direct to the internet?

Or there is no viable solution to this? so either direct to AWS or using an external system to store the signatures?


Best Regards,

(Sorry - just realized you already knew about the external server method. missed that in your post. - I'm not aware of a 'direct' proxy method, sorry.)

You can still use an alternate server to download the signatures too and then get appfw to look at the alternate server, so even if you can't route appfw through proxy your signature server can go through proxy:  https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX138858


You can try a proxy (its mentioned, but no steps provided), so I would use the alternate server method instead:  https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-adc/current-release/application-firewall/signatures/signature-auto-update.html


Ironically, IPREP downloads have to be done by ADC but they do allow for proxies.
