How to Create an App Redirect Access Rule

  • Last updated on

The App Redirect access rule rewrites the destination IP address and forwards the traffic to service running on the CloudGen Firewall. For example, you can use an app redirect rule transparently redirect all web traffic over the HTTP proxy service.


Create an App Redirect Access Rule

  2. Click Lock.
  3. Either click the plus icon (+) in the top right of the rule set, or right-click the rule set and select New > Rule.
  4. Select App Redirect as the action.
  5. Enter a Name for the rule. For example, Transparent-Proxy-LAN2INTERNET.
  6. Specify the following settings that must be matched by the traffic to be handled by the access rule:
    • Source – The source addresses of the traffic.
    • Destination – The destination addresses of the traffic.
    • Service – Select a service object, or select Any for this rule to match for all services.
  7. Enter the Redirection IP address and optional port as the Local Address. For example, for the HTTP proxy service.
  8. Click OK.
