Change the Default Rule

If traffic does not match any of the rules you have defined for a proxy category, the Firebox uses the default rule.

To modify the default rule, from Fireware Web UI:

  1. On the HTTP Proxy Action Settings page, from the HTTP Request drop-down list, select Request Methods.
    The Request Methods settings appear.
  2. From the Action to take if no rule above is matched drop-down list, select the default rule.
