Routing Statements on an HP 5412zl

Posted on 2009-04-30

We are setting up our network to use a proxy server & would like to avoid pushing out the proxy settings to our clients (and guests) - that said, we were looking at maybe taking our core switch (HP 5412zl) & writing a routing statement that takes all port 80 & port 443 traffic & re-directs it to ProxyServer:1300, thus enabling the traffic to filter through directly.

First of all - am I missing anything....second of all, can an HP 5412zl even do routing statements & can it be done through the web interface?

    You can only make a basic routing on a L3 switch, like static routes.
    AFAIK you can only do it from CLI.

    Afraid this is not what you hoped for.

    What are our other options then?  We basically need to be able to redirect all of our port 80 outbound internet traffic to a proxy that is either internal to our network or external - we use a Cisco ASA 5520 router/firewall, would that be able to handle it?

    We presently use ISA for our wired PC's. Setup with the ISA firewall clients.

    To avoid toutching student's PC's we also have different setup.
    For wireless users we have AP's connected to a box doing filtering & NAT
    - leading to a L3 routing sw. with static routing to the internal servers network and DGW set to internet router.

    I have not worked with ASA, but I think it can be done:
