Flash Bypassing Proxy Settings - 15.Oct.2008 9:39:10 PM

I currently have a T1 for CyberCafe gamers and a DSL channeled through my 2006 ISA server as a proxy for Internet users. We are in a workgroup environment. All the proxy settings are set on Internet Explorer for all our PC's. After some testing I realized that anything played through the Flash addon or player are bypassing our browser's proxy settings and using the T1 which is specified as our gateway thus causing massive lag on our T1 line. You tube movies and other players don't seem to have this problem, only Flash Player. In short Flash Player is ignoring our bowser proxy setting in favor of our gateway / T1. I performed a test ans removed the gateway on a test machine forcing Flash to use our proxy and everything works fine. But if I change it back, Flash favors the gateway over the Internet Explorer proxy browser settings. I've been searching everywhere for an answer to this problem with no luck. Adobe doesn't offer support for a free Flash player. Their knowledge base and forums aren't helping either. I've even called their technical support but I hung up once I realized I was talking to India.  Does anyone have any info on this problem? There are no options to specifly a proxy for the flash player. Please Help.

Fully configure the ISA firewall as network firewall so that bypass is impossible.

HTH,

Do you mean setup my T1 to also go through the firewall and not just the DSL line? If this is the case I will need to add a third network card to my firewall and channel my T1 router though the ISA server as well?

You only need two NICs on your firewall.

An internal and external interface. Then point the clients to the internal interface of the ISA firewall as their default gateways. In that way, users will not be able to bypass the firewall since there is no other path to the Internet.

HTH,
Tom

Here's my problem. I setup the ISA server so I could dedicate my T1 for our gamers and proxy all Internet traffic though our ISA server for customers that only came in for Internet access. Is there any way that I can configure the firewall and still separate the traffic in the this manner?

The Flash player might respect the Firewall client settings, if you can get that installed on the clients.

HTH,
Tom
