You are required to setup an additional separate shared public Internet access to deal just with the downloads only for the SWG module. This is also against internal security policies, it is not allowed for a device initiated connections to the Internet without being handled by a proxy infrastructure.


Without this feature, your security policy cannot be satisfied for database downloads without which SWG functionality cannot work.


SWG Database Download.



Fix Information

To enable SWG database download through proxy, new option "Use Proxy" has been added in SWG Database Settings to use the configured proxy for SWG database download.
