Why are HTTPS requests bypassing global proxy settings in the Knox SDK?

This applies only to the class FirewallPolicy in the depreciated Knox Standard SDK version 4.1 or earlier. The proxy rules apply only to HTTP requests (port 80) and not HTTPS requests (port 8443).

With the Knox SDK or Knox Standard SDK version 5.0+, you can call the API method setGlobalProxy() to set a global proxy on the device. This API supports both HTTP and HTTPS requests for the whole device.
