Explicit web proxy - insert HTTP header extension

Hello guys,

do you have someone idea, how to insert HTTP header extension into TLS client hello packet?

What I exactly want...

I need add HTTP header extension server_name, exactly same like on screenshot from wireshark.


I have proxy policy, where is used proxy profile:

config firewall proxy-policy

    edit 1
        set uuid 55ba9284-33f9-51eb-8102-0009101ff954
        set proxy explicit-web
        set dstintf "virtual-wan-link"
        set srcaddr ""
        set dstaddr ""
        set service "webproxy"
        set action accept
        set schedule "always"
        set webproxy-profile "proxy-profile"
config web-proxy profile
    edit "proxy-profile"
        set header-via-request add
        set log-header-change enable
        config headers
            edit 1
                set name "SNI"
                set add-option append
                set content "server_name"

But this settings not works.

Do you have idea, how to set "set content" under web profile header?

Documentation is not so much rich about that.


Thank you very much, Ondrej
