Bluecoat Proxy – Site restriction

Hey, sysadmin’s

Those administering Bluecoat Proxy SG appliance and has encountered that allowing certain sites/url for selected users does not work properly.

This is due to that the main site accessing  different subsites/urls in background for providing the associated services.

All those sites/urls have to be taken into consideration while providing access to particular site.

Well lets take for example you give access to only hotmail/live.com and its not working properly then in that case the following all urls needs to be permitted for flawless working:

hotmail site      

.accountservices.passport.net
.secure.shared.live.com 
.live.com     

and for facebook here are the URL which includes games apps too.

facebook site

.facebook.com
.facebook.net
.fbcdn.net 
.akamaihd.net        
.zgncdn.com

enjoy…
