How to use lw-http with IP Policy?

Post by zipper » 17 May 2018, 15:42

How do I use lw-http in an ip policy?

I´ve been searching through the Administration Guide for information about using lw-http alg in an IP policy but I can´t seem to find my answer.
By reading the last post in this thread viewtopic.php?f=18&t=4457 Im lead to belive that lw-http is automaticly used by an ip policy if I set http/https protocol.

Is there anyone who can explain this a bit?

You are correct. The LW-ALG is automatically used when used on an IP policy with Protocol set to HTTP/HTTPS.

However, this only applies for the latest 12 version (12.00.08 and up). Prior to this version not all functionality in the old ALG was implemented in the LW-ALG, meaning that depending on which functions you had selected you could in some scenarios still use the old ALG (and get performance problems) on an IP policy.

But if you are using 12.00.08 and up, any policy + a service with HTTP/HTTPS proto is using the LW-ALG.

Best regards
