Traffic Forwarding via SWG Agent
Another method of forwarding traffic from endpoints to Comodo SWG is to install SWG agents on them. This is useful if you:
- Don’t want to use any of the first three methods (direct proxy/PAC, proxy chaining or ICAP)
- Have a limited number of endpoints to protect
- Want to protect endpoints outside of your network
The main purpose of installing the SWG agent is to protect roaming devices and deploy user-specific rules. However, these devices can also be used in a protected network. Network location based policies will be applied to such devices.
- Supports user specific policies deployment.
- Supports computer specific policies deployment.
- There is no need to select any authentication and traffic forwarding option on the Locations interface.
- See the step ‘Connect your roaming device(s) to Comodo SWG‘ for information about how to install SWG agents on devices.
- Comodo SWG uses ports 17443, 19443 and 19080 to connect to your networks. Please configure your firewall to allow SWG traffic over these ports.
