HTTP Explicit Proxy - V11.5+

Problem this snippet solves:

This iApp configures an Explicit Proxy using the new "Explicit" Proxy Mode that was introduced into the HTTP Profile in BIG-IP 11.5.

You only need LTM or APM provisioned.

It creates all configuration components required including:

  • DNS Resolvers
  • TCP Tunnel
  • HTTP Profile (Explicit)
  • Default Connect Handling set to Allow
  • SNAT Pools (Optional)
  • SNAT Default is Automap

If you require the Explicit Proxy to listen on more than 1 port e.g 3128 and 8080, simply just create another Application Service.
