Steering exception not working

Hello everyone,

I have a very annoying problem with my Netskope Steering configuration.
Domain bypass exceptions don't work.

For example, I need to access a site under development, which allows access via IP filtering. As this site is in our exceptions, we're normally supposed to be able to access it with our classic public IP, so I've added it to the exceptions.

But despite this, we arrive on the site with a netskope IP (163.x.x.x), which prevents access to the site.

I'm a bit stumped at this point...
Do you have any ideas?

Good morning @Saga,


What do the client logs show for the connection to that host? You should see a line that indicates if Netskope is steering or bypassing the traffic in the nsdebuglog.log file.  Is it all domain bypasses or just a specific one? Further, did you update the client config (or wait one hour) after creating the steering bypass?
