Default setup utm to be a parent proxy


anyone that can point me at a guid to setup a UTM as a parent proxy to another UTM?

I have a use to setup a domain redirect via a parent proxy in head office (long story licencing issues)

I had another thread regarding something similar over ipsec, with a ds redirect which kindof works but doesn't...

If you have a Web Protection subscription in one location (A) and not the other (B), your best choice is a site-to-site VPN.

I'm a bit confused about what you're trying to accomplish. Maybe you just need to add a Web Filtering Profile in A in Standard mode with only the IP of B in 'Allowed networks' and a Parent Proxy in B.

okay basically:

I have an application at, that licencing is required to all run out of site B

the application has a dynamic dns records which points to a couple of load balances by the looks of things (thus I can't ponit it at an ip address only otherwise the problem would be solved)

so my though was run a proxy server so...

site A will be the parent server to site B...

then all that required is that the parent proxy to take any request coming from site b going to x.doman.com go through parent proxy on A so it shows as IP as site A not site b

hope this is easily achieved
