Scope:

Barracuda Web Application Firewall, all firmware versions


Answer:

Note: Compression policy improves the response time for clients accessing the service through modems. This policy can be applied to all the client requests and also to specific client requests. Enabling compression for a service applies compression policy to all requests for the service.


This option is available under Web Sites > Traffic management > Compression > Edit. Go to Compress Unknown Content Types and set this option to YES.


This option Specifies whether the Web Application Firewall compresses files of unknown content types or not. These unknown file types can be non text content types such as executable binaries, flash content and so on.
