I'm testing a few android tablets on our wireless the other day when I realize that it seems to be bypassing our inline barracuda filter. I then pull up the logs and realize it thinks the tablet is a legitimate Authenticated domain user. It then occurs to me that it must be using the last authenticated user that used that IP Address.


This problem has happened to someone? Anyone know a solution to mitigate this failure?

Hi marcos,


This is a widely known occurrence and is based on configuration parameters within your Network, AD, and possibly the web filter.


this is a good article to start with, and past it please contact support to review anything further you may be running into
