How to verify if Server is Working

Post by miltont » 15 Jul 2016 17:25

Greetings
I have installed an instance of cacheguard, my external ip 192.168.0.200
and internal network 10.20.0.20


I want to setup 1 PC in my internal network 10.20.0.x/
if i put in the default gateway the internal address of the cache server 10.20.0.20
it should be good to go? or do i have to make other settings on my client pc?
How can i verify that the server is serving my requests?si there a log where i can see the traffic?

Hi

Actually it depends on your network topology. If CG (its internal IP address) is your default gateway and the transparent mode is activated all HTTP traffic are intercepted by CG so they are cached, compressed, filtered... You have also the possibility to configure your Web browsers to explicitly use CG as a Web proxy. Please read more on this topic at http://www.cacheguard.net/doc/guide/transparent.html.

To ensure that your traffic are intercepted by CG you can activate the logging. To activate the logging of Web traffic use the following commands:

Code: Select all

mode log on
log type web on
apply
Please refer to the log command manual at http://www.cacheguard.net/doc/command/log.html for further information.

Finally you can use the auditing module to inspect logs in real time. To do so you must first activate the auditing mode using the following commands:

Code: Select all

admin waudit on
apply
Then you can connect to your CG appliance to inspects logs using the following URL: https://<cg-internal-ip>:8091 (in your case https://10.20.0.20:8091).
