You can work with the interface of Web Gateway through a browser that requires no Java support.
Product behavior is mainly the same as when using other methods for working with Web Gateway, with a few differences.
These differences are mostly related to file handling with the purpose of moving files between Web Gateway and your local file system.
Uploading and downloading files to and from Web Gateway, exporting and importing lists or rule sets from and to files, and some other activities require that you work with another dialog window to complete them.
Working with an additional window for file handling
Assume you want to download a file from Web Gateway to your local file system. Two windows are involved in the process:
- The usual Web Gateway window for file downloads
- A second window file handling activities
You browse for and select a file in the first window and execute the download by clicking the appropriate button in the second.
A third window is involved when you upload a file from your local system to Web Gateway.
Options of the additional window
The additional window for file handling provides the following options.
Downloads a file from Web Gateway to your local system.
Before performing the download, you select the file in the usual window of the Web Gateway
Uploads a file from your local system to Web Gateway.
You select the file and perform the upload in a third window, which opens after selecting this
Deletes a file within Web Gateway.
Before deleting this file, you select it in the usual window of the Web Gateway interface.
Activities to be completed in the additional window
The file handling activities that are completed in the additional window are listed here.
They are grouped according to the tabs and pages of the Web Gateway interface that you begin with to perform an activity.

Number of users working on Web Gateway
When using a browser that is not supported by Java, we recommend limiting the number of simultaneous users (administrators) on a Web Gateway appliance to 6. This is also the default limit.
Best practice: If you are running multiple appliances as nodes in a Central Management cluster, you can distribute users among the appliances without exceeding the limit for each appliance.
