Lab 3.3: Testing the Explicit Proxy deployment¶
To test the deployed solution, RDP to the Outbound Win7 Client and do the following:
Username = student / Password = agility
Configure the client browser to use 10.20.0.150:3128 for explicit proxy access.
- This setting for Chrome can be find in .
SSH to BIG-IP CLI and run the following tcpdump command to view the browser traffic hitting the explicit proxy IP.
tcpdump -nni client-net port 3128
Test by browsing to url of choice. You should see the traffic stream across tcpdump from previous command.
An explicit proxy request test can also be done using command-line cURL:
curl -vk –proxy 10.20.0.150:3128 https://www.example.com
Again watch the tcpdump from the previous test to confirm explicit proxy use.
