Slow websense block pages - 11.Mar.2005 2:36:00 PM

We've just installed ISA 2004 standard (in web cache mode) and Websense 2005.
Everything appears to be working fine; Websense is filtering sites correctly and everyone is authenticating fine.
The only problem i have come across is that websense block pages seem to be very slow. I dont think its a problem with websense taking a long time to filter the page as unbloked sites are fine,and even when i page is blocked, the title bar changes to say 'blocked by websense'. Its just that the actual page is taking ages to be displayed.
Has anyone got any suggestions? Any help would be great.
Thank you

Hi there, now to cut a long story short....is your ISA really in Web Cahce mode, as I tried to do the same on a "Single NIC" server, but it doesn't install in what Microsoft state as "Web Cache" mode.

In essence it still acts as a firewall and thus you are probably inadvertently blocking the port that Websense communicates on. (15871)

The way to tell is open your Logging and filter on Firewall and Web Proxy logs, and filter on this port. You may find that its being blocked by the defauly Dent all rule.

The way got around this was to allow all ports between local host and local host

Let me know if this works for you
