In this video, you’ll learn how to set up a basic transparent web proxy. You can use the transparent proxy to apply web authentication to all HTTP traffic that’s accepted by a firewall policy.
In previous versions of FortiOS, web authentication required the Explicit Proxy. Now, in addition to the Explicit Web Proxy, FortiOS now supports a Transparent Web Proxy. which forwards your users’ web traffic to the proxy without requiring your users to reconfigure their browsers, or without needing to publish a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file.
Note: This is just a basic setup. Authentication concepts are covered in other recipes, which you can read at cookbook.fortinet.com.
