A common question in the Blue Coat forums is about the server specification for the BCAAA and how many users can be supported. While I am not sure sure about the performance that Blue Coat recommends I can tell you my experiences.
You have been reading the Blue Coat forums and someone has given you a piece of config that you need to use. This post shows you how to load the config snippet
Step 1 – Go to Configuration, Policy, Policy Files and select the drop down box ‘Install local file from’ as per the screenshot below”
This will open a simple window that allows for very simple text. You need to be careful about your syntax here, because this text is the actual Blue Coat CPL* programming language. now insert the text as shown
and when you click on install, the CPL will parsed by the compiler. If it passes the compiler it will report a success message.
You can now test to confirm that this working as you expected.
*(Content Policy Language)
1. Terminology used by sales representative to refer to high level of quality and overall excellence in this product, as in ìit wasn’t built on the cheapî. Sometimes even meant honestly.
2. Term that refers to the eye watering cost of the product or solution, often for the benefit of the manufacturer or reseller.
3. For very large companies, a mandatory requirement for any IT project, as anything cheap is inherently and obviously valueless.
In this technically surreal, mystical world of Networking, we are often fabricating new words, coining new terms or adapting old language to new requirements. Our profession is not the first to do this, but our language is our own. How many people can conduct a 15 minute conversation without a single coherent sentence ? Can you count how many TLA and ETLA you can eject in a single breath ?
These terms, these expressions of our unique and singular profession, should be documented and treasured for future generations. Hackers have the jargon file, we should have a similar record of our kultcha.
I have started to collect the terms that I use on a regular basis, and expound their meaning. I hope to collect their actual and colloquial meaning and perhaps offer some insight into use and definition.
In the weeks to come, I will post words that are part of the Networking World. I hope you like them.
A short list of SOCKS Clients that I have used or know of
Note that many programs have their own SOCKS client built in, many FTP clients such as Filezilla, WS FTP, Firefox and so on have built in support. You really need a client when you have an application that must use a proxy server, but the application does not have proxy support.
