Summary0002348: Endian 2.3 proxy authentication not working properly
DescriptionI KNOW this is a bug because this used to work perfectly in 2.3 RC1. When you create an access policy rule and select "user based authentication" or "group based authentication" and you select the proper user/groups, the policy wont have any effect UNLESS you configure the client with the non-transparent proxy settings. Basically the "authentication" portion of Endian is broken, as it should ask the client for credentials even if the client is not configured to use a proxy, I have verified that I have Endian set in transparent mode.

if the proxy is running in transparent mode authentication does not work. this i because transparent mode means that all http traffic is forwarded to the http proxy with iptables, which makes user authentication imposible.

Please test again with non-transparent mode. if proxy is enabled for a zone and the clients of the zone are not allowed to access port 80 & 443, with an outgoing firewall rule, the browser will search for an http proxy (if configured in the browser settings) and should use the http proxy of your firewall and asks for authentication if the access policies are correctly configured.

User based authentication will never work in transparent mode.
