Gateway Administration Guide

BlueCat Gateway

Within Security settings in the General Configuration, you can configure caching headers to control how browsers cache data when using Gateway.

You can manage the following HTTP caching headers:

To specify the cache control header details for Gateway:

  1. Open the General configuration window, then expand the Security section. (Click the Navigator button if necessary, then click Configurations > General configuration. Click Security at the bottom to expand the Security settings.)

  2. Scroll down to the Cache control section, then configure the following.
    • Select the Don't cache response (no-store) checkbox to specify that the response must not be stored in any cache.

    • Select the Revalidate response before each reuse cache (no-cache) checkbox to specify that the response may be stored in any cache, even if the response is generally non-cacheable. Doing so enables the no-cache cacheability directive.

    • In Max age (seconds), specify the maximum amount of time in seconds that a resource is considered "fresh". The default is 86400 seconds (one day).

    • In the Cache storage, select where the response can be stored:
      • Public: The response may be stored in any cache.
      • Private: The the response may be stored only by a browser's cache.
    • Select the Must revalidate checkbox to specify that caches must not use stale copies of a resource without successfully validating it from the origin server. Doing so enables the must-revalidate directive.

    • Select the Pragma checkbox to allow for backwards compatibility with HTTP/1.0 clients.

  3. When you're done, click Save.

    To cancel your changes, click Cancel.
