We are using software that requires all users who try and access the Internet to enter their user ID and password. To exclude the SUS server from this validation, I need to supply my security department with the IP address(es) and/or URL(s) that the SUS server will be accessing and the protocol(s) used. I have not been able to find that information. Any ideas?
These tools are not designed to ask for credentials when establishing a new browser session. They are, however, designed such that they do not create a new session, but can reuse an existing session. Thus, if you start a browser session, authenticate through the firewall and leave that session running. These tools will then reuse that authenticated session and work without issues. (Note: Some firewalls will allow you to set up a rule to forego authentication for a specific IP address.)
