Allowing Lacerte

There's a kb article out there that appears to be providing incorrect information as to how to allow Lacerte to work with ISA. It's KB 839503. In fairness it is written for ISA 2000, but even when translated into ISA 2004 lanuage it still appears incorrect. Jim Barr found a rule that works. Here's how to create it.

1. Click Create New Access Rule, call it Lacerte Outbound and make it an Allow rule.

2. Apply the rule to All Outbound traffic.

3. Traffic will be from the Internal Network Set.

4. The rule applies to traffic to these two Address Sets: 198.31.208.130-140 and 208.240.240.200.

5. This rules applies to all users.

Click on Apply to let the rule take effect.

This information fixed the Lacerte eFile problem (Error 12032) for all my clients that had the problem.
Thanks Amy (and Jim Barr) for getting this info out to the SBSC community.

Nice.
I applied the Technet fix and everything worked except the efile.
Thanks for a nice straight forward answer to the issue.

I found this info to be vauge. I am trying this for SBS 2003 and must be missing something. Are we talking about a new Rule under "Site and Content Rules". I do not see a few of the things mentioned here like where to apply the 2 address sets. Actually most of this article did not "specifically" apply to ISA in SBS 2003. Details can make all the difference. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?

Thanks,
Al
