Wirless Machines not getting Intercepted by Bluecoat web proxy

Hi,

 

I have multiple vlans configued on the Aruba Wireless controller.

 

The aruba connectes to the core switch, then Bluecoat (which is in trasparent interception mode) and Finally Firewall.

 

When i put the proxy settings in wirelss machines, the packets are gtting intercpted without any issues.

 

But wihout proxy ip, wehn I ACCESS internet, the packets are not being seen by the bluecoat.

Ideally all the internet traffic passes thru proxy which is inline.

 

When I check the Firewall, I see the source mac address as Aruba's mac.

 

 

Any ideas why the traffic not hit the bluecoat.Also why I am seeing aruba mac address if it passes thru core switch.

That is probably because you have source-nat on that VLAN.  It is Natting all the traffic by the Aruba controller.  Uncheck source-nat on the VLAN interface.

I dont think source natting is the issue..

Because I see the original source ip address inthe Firewall

Do a wired packet capture.
