  • Add a HTTP packet filter for your Xbox.
    From: To: Any-external
    Make sure that this policy ends up higher up on your policy list than the current HTTP proxy policy.

    If you also have a HTTPS proxy policy, you may need to add a HTTPS packet filter for your Xbox too.

    Like bruce mentioned, a packet filter is probably going to be your best bet.

    The Firewall is going to attempt to decompress any archive that it comes across (zip, tgz, rar, etc) - if it's unable to, it'll throw an error and follow whatever the error action is in that proxy for GAV. It's unlikely that the firewall will be able to recognize anything the firebox does download.

    I would suggest keeping the XBOX on a different subnet that doesn't have any access to your main network, so that if anything did happen, all it would be able to do is contact the outside world.

    Thanks will try it out, have also tried to use expetion, but I cant see if it helped. I using Xbox on dedicated interface (10.03.x and dhcp) . The Xbos have updated and upgraded, and there was lots of downloads, so it was busy for some while, mean time I received all these Firebox and Proxy attempts checking gzip.
