http request is not rewriting

I have an interesting issue. I have a Flash application that is used for training and at the end, it records the user's completion by sending a call to the host webserver (internal) over port 80.

The rewriting engine works fine in rewriting the website and the flash presentation, but the request at the end which is sent to training.domain.com:80 (from iexplore.exe) does not go through the rewriter. Instead it tries to pass over the internet. If the user has WSAM running, it uses that to pass the port 80 traffic and works. Unfortunately, many of our employees work in gov't spaces and cannot run WSAM so the request just dies.

Thoughts or suggestions?

@locus90: do you have Flash allowed on the role?

Please get the logs as outlined here (http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/ive/guides/troubleshooting/RewriteTroubleshootingandLogColl... and open a case w/ JTAC to see if this is something that is supported (and check the content intermediation guide for the OS version you are using to see if the URL is formed in a manner expected to work...URL rewriting in Flash is not always successful)

Re: http request is not rewriting

Do you know if the site is hard-coded on where to send the traffic? It is possible for the item to not be possible to be rewritten based on the application configuration itself. Is training.domain.com configured to be rewritten? If you do a policy trace for a user set to record only rewriting events, does this show as the action to rewrite?

Re: http request is not rewriting

I have similar issue with rewriting of urls within flash file. Do I need to configure Juniper specifically to allow urls within my flash file to get rewritten?
