IssuePart of configuring an HTTP Federated (HFED) application is defining the proxy web server(s) needed to force user traffic through the IDR reverse proxy.
In addition to their main domain, applications will often include links that go outside the application's domain. The HFED configuration must include proxy web servers for these other domains or the user's browser will go directly to these other domains without first passing through the IDR. 
ResolutionFirefox add-on Link Gopher can be used to help quickly identify all page links/domains to help define additional proxy web servers for your HFED application (HFED configuration Step 4. Proxy Settings). 
  1. Use Link Gopher add-on Extract All Links.  In this example, the application Zabbix is hosted by websvr02.example.com.

  1. Identify additional domains from the Extracted Links output.  In this case additional domains/sites are identified.
