This article provides guidance for when a transparent authentication policy (Web proxy > Authentication > Policy wizard) would be suitable.
You configure transparent connections from users’ computers Guardian by configuring computers’ network connections to use Guardian as the default gateway.
In order for a transparent policy to work, the following must be in place:
- DNS must be set up correctly on your network so that user computers can resolve the short form of Guardian’s hostname, for example: resolve
mysystemfor the hostname
- User computers and Guardian must be within the same DNS domain.
- Internet Explorer must be configured to authenticate automatically with intranet sites.
