    Hi All,

    Please help to see access logging why have authentication fail so much and have error http 407.

    Client authentication via IWA Realm and computer is join domain.

    but client normal access to internet but first time access website it so slowly. you can see from attach file.

    in attach files have access logging and CPL.

    Hi Chakuttha,


                       As you know, 407 messages are for proxy authentication challenges. Depending on the authentication mechanism in place, there will 1 or 2 authentication response of 407 could occur per web request which needs authentication to get through. For Basic or Kerberos authentication, the number of 407's will be 1 when NTLM will need two 407s to complete authentication. I have extracted an access-log entry from your log file and it shows the two 407s I am mentioning.


    2017-12-15 16:19:26 1 - - authentication_failed DENIED "o356;Non-Viewable/Infrastructure" -  407 TCP_DENIED CONNECT - tcp 443 / - - - 306 85 - "Microsoft Update" "Update Software"
    2017-12-15 16:19:26 2 - - authentication_failed DENIED "o356;Non-Viewable/Infrastructure" -  407 TCP_DENIED CONNECT - tcp 443 / - - - 489 174 - "Microsoft Update" "Update Software"
    2017-12-15 16:19:26 4 v05082$ - policy_denied DENIED "o356;Non-Viewable/Infrastructure" -  403 TCP_DENIED CONNECT - tcp 443 / - - - 184 738 - "Microsoft Update" "Update Software"


    All the three request is see is for a single attempt of an application to get through the ProxySG. Two 407s are for authentication based on NTLM and 3rd one is the Denial as the client got authenticated with its machine account (Not user account). 


    The authentication method used is Proxy-IP but I don't see the Auth best practise in place. Do have a check on article and add the attached file (in the article) to your local policy file.

    Hi Chakuttha,


                   That option is for proxy to "not" convert the authentication prompt of server to 407. This is not related to our case. The authentication best practice is normally a safe one to add as is unless you have specific policies which might be affected by this.

    Hi Aravind,

           condition=userAgentList authenticate(no) allow
    	   condition=DoNotAuthDomains authenticate(no) allow
    	   condition=DoNotAuthActions authenticate(no) allow ; Remove "allow" if POST & PUT operations are controlled via different policy.
    	   condition=IWA_SILENT_USERS deny.unauthorized 
    define condition userAgentList
    request.header.User-Agent="webex utiltp" 
    request.header.User-Agent="Acrobat Messages Updater"
    request.header.User-Agent="Adobe Log Transport"
    request.header.User-Agent="Adobe Update Manager"
    request.header.User-Agent="Microsoft BITS"
    request.header.User-Agent="Microsoft Data Access Internet Publishing Provider Protocol Discovery"
    define condition DoNotAuthDomains  						; url used by windows vista/7/8 to verify network connectivity  					; microsoft ssl cert verification url  				; microsoft SSL cert verification URL  			   			; SSL verification url used by IE 8/9     			; microsoft URL used to report OS failures			 			; trend micro AV update						; McAfee AV update 					; Norton/Symantec AV update 				; Panda AV update 			; Panda AV license/Software update
    define condition DoNotAuthActions
    define condition IWA_SILENT_USERS
    user="NT AUTHORITY\anonymous logon"



    from attach file in article i must revise about defind condition useragent and donotauthsdomain right? before install to local policy.
