Reverse Proxy: Captive Portal for Authentication
will there be a feature like Authentication / captive portal (e.g. the proxy settings"transparent with authentication" ) for enabling a reverse proxy?
This would be so usfull for small installations with no frontend exchange / DMZ.
(juniper calls this "webauth" )
Authentication against AD for access to WEB server

Would love to see this! If you implement a working solution, which will publish a captive portal using ldap for auth and redirects the credentials directly to the Outlook Web Access (standardauth), you could be the only real alternative for microsofts TMG. There is no solution out there, which handles the owa auth that well.... we have many customers asking for this.
I woud love to see this feature to be implemented ASAP.
I hope the next version will have it.

Would be a great idea.

This feature can also be a good workaround for HTTP resources we would like to publish in the HTML5 portal but that are limited to 1 user (and we don't want to define x times the same resource).
this feauture is very important, we have many requests for searching a tmg alternative especially owa publishing and controll access for different user groups.
how many votes needed to force this request ?
Gert, how many votes needed for this feature?

Please as soon as possible!! That would be a great feature for the ReverseProxy. Citrix calls it AccessGateway..
hi Gert (@ Astaro), any further progress on this. We are planning to implement a web based CRM/ERP I would like to protect in addition... thx
Please as soon as possible! That would be a great feature.

Please earlier! That would be a greate feature!
I 2nd this, I would love to expose a few internal web sites to my users OUTSIDE of my network. Having AD Authentication for the Web Application module would be perfect. Our old Novell iChain had this feature, it was very nice.

Do you mean WebAdmin? This already exists. You can set access to admin by user or groups, which can be setup as linked to backend (AD) accounts or groups.
We need this feature as soon as posible!
An authentication portal is the only missing feature that keeps us from offering OWA via Internet... It would be a great thing!

For an easier implementation of Outlook Web Access (OWA) it is a must!
We' ve got actual 3 costumers, who needs this feature .
The new reverse proxy feature is great to protect public webservers. To really protect company-insides (OWA, CRM,..) a captive portal with a dedicated authentication (backend e.g. LDAP, SSO, AAA (RSA)...) is a must. Without this, ISA servers and oder similar products would still be required.

thanks für your reply... so we just need some votes ;-)

We have this feature on the roadmap of the "Web Application Security" subscription, but it won't make it into the initial release.
But we do support transparent authentication pass-through, that means if your webserver does authentication, we transparently handle that (with the exception of NTLM/NTLMv2).
Adding "webauth" is planned for a feature release. Depending on the # of votes, this might be earlier or later.
