Ip.zscslergov.com for Federal customers

Hello,.

Will Zscaler make ip.zscalergov.com available to Federal customers? Alternatively, is there a tool which could show a user authentication status on zscalergov? In commercial cloud there is http://ip.zscaler.com/ unfortunately this does not work with zscalergov.
Thanks,

Hi Alex,

Not sure if it’s available to you but please try the new Speedtest from Zscaler which ONLY works for authenticated users I’ve been told.

Another alternative which wont show you authentication status but hopefully your SME details is this old Easter Egg

127.0.0.1:9000?ztest?q=username@company.com

Kindly let me know if either of these are of any help

Speedtest http://speedtest.zscaler.com/ works. It shows the username and ZScaler node where the user is connected to.
127.0.0.1:9000?ztest?q=username@company.com did not work for me. May be bc we use IPSEC for the traffic forwarding?
In any case Speedtest from ZScaler is good enough.
Thanks!

Hello Alex,
You are correct. The 127.0.0.1:9000 trick only works when Zscaler Client Connector is installed. I’m glad the speedtest site worked for you.

Warm Regards,
Chris

Hi Chris,
Should speedtest.zscaler.com work when the traffic is forwarded via Virtual Service Edge? Thanks,

Hi Alex,

It speedtest.zscaler.com works for me via our Private Service Edges.

@G-Man8 What is your method for traffic forwarding to PSEs?

We use GRE and ZCC for Forwarding to PSE’s

Interesting, we use pac file and the site does not appear to be working. Thanks,

The support is telling me that this functionality is not available yet with pac-forwarding to VSEs. Is there any ETA on the availability? Thanks,

@Chris_Louie I’m being told by ZScaler support that http://speedtest.zscaler.com is not a valid tool for performance testing as it uses ICMP. Is there any other tool available from ZScaler for troubleshooting issues associated with delays? They keep pushing me towards ZDX, but ZCC is not supported with Windows Server.

Supported or not, ZCC does work on Windows Server, and honestly works quite well.

@dan.carlson Yeah it does not work great as it crashes Windows Server periodicaly.

I’m not experiencing that. Most of my population where this is used are on about 1,500 Amazon WorkSpaces and AppStream virtual desktops, which are Server 2016 based, but I also have it on a few Server 2019 boxes that need to talk directly to remote user devices and we can use ZPA to do that. I monitor them all in Aternity, and I have never seen ZCC actually crash Windows. I’ve seen the occasional zsatunnel.exe crash, but that’s in the background and the user usually doesn’t even notice, and those have lessened after upgrading to 3.9.0.175.

What are your conditions like where you experience Windows crashes?
