Subject: RE: [fw-wiz] Question on web proxy architecture


The AV is a separate entity on the same subnet

The AV is forwarded all uncached content from the proxy via the ICAP
protocol.

As i understand it, the AV just responds to the proxy not the client.

This sounds like a pretty flexible solution. If both proxies are
single-homed, the web proxy can suffer performance problems since it will
handle each request and response 2 or 3 times on a single interface. If
it's 100TX and the Internet connection is a 1.5Mbps T1, it won't be a
problem, but you get the idea.
