In this video, you will learn how to add an explicit proxy with web caching to your wireless network.
An explicit proxy requires all devices on the wireless network to connect to the proxy at port 8080 before they can browse content on the Internet. WAN Optimization web caching can be added to reduce bandwidth use and improve performance.
The recipe for this video is available here.

WAN Optimization and WAN Optimization Web Caching is not available on all FortiGate models. For information about which models support this feature see the FortiOS
Feature/Platform matrix (http
://docs.fortinet.com/d/fortigate-fortios-5.2.4-feature-platform-matrix). Your FortiGate does not require WAN Optimization Web Caching to configure the explicit proxy. You can skip the WAN Optimization Web Caching steps if your FortiGate does not support this feature.
