McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise 3.5
Proxy Servers


The SiteAdvisor Enterprise (SAE) 3.5 browser balloon is shown in orange.

You do not see a rating when SAE 3.5 resides behind a proxy.
Using the Troubleshooting SiteAdvisor Communication Errors option shows the following:
Internet Access
Green checkmark
SiteAdvisor Server Available
Green checkmark

The SiteAdvisor servers are up and responding to requests, but SiteAdvisor cannot access the Internet.

Possible Resolution
This might indicate that the SiteAdvisor proxy server policy settings are configured incorrectly.


This issue was addressed in SAE 3.5 Patch 1. Upgrade to the latest patch level.
