Request For Post Ideas

It's been a slow summer blog wise because it's been an unusually busy summer business wise. I promise to get back on schedule. If you have an idea for a blog post, please submit it to the comments. Thanks! Amy

Hi Amy! We've seen some issues with ISA 2004 configuration in the past where some apps don't work as they only communicate over port 80 in a non-http sort of way. Any insight on these? I don't know the app we last dealt with off the top of my head, but we ended up on the phone with Microsoft and after 6 hours we ended up having rules where HTTP traffic was initially excluded in the rule, built a custom port 80 protocol and then had a rule allowing that custom protocol out. If this doesn't make any sense, let me know and I can send some of the rules over offline so you can have a look.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

I'd like to see that rule. Typically users with the Firewall client installed and enabled are able to use non-http protocols. Which application gave you this trouble?

I've been trying to get Windows Media Connect to work on my home network with SBS and the Firewall Client installed on the desktops. I've had no luck trying to troubleshoot using the real-time logging. I'm trying to view content on an Xbox 360, which apparently isn't supported on a network with ISA. Thanks, Amy!

Amy - here is that app that doesn't work well through ISA. I'll be away for awhile so I can't get to the office to grab those rules for you. This app works fine through a standard NAT box but for some reason, ISA doesn't like it. Here you go!

Aside from the complex physical connections that make up its infrastructure, the Internet is facilitated by bi- or multi-lateral commercial contracts (e.g., peering agreements), and by technical specifications or protocols that describe how to exchange data over the network. Indeed, the Internet is essentially defined by its interconnections and routing policies.

As of December 30, 2007, 1.319 billion people use the Internet according to Internet World Stats. Writing in the Harvard International Review, philosopher N.J. Slabbert, a writer on policy issues for the Washington, D.C.–based Urban Land Institute, has asserted that the Internet is fast becoming a basic feature of global civilization, so that what has traditionally been called "civil society" is now becoming identical with information technology society as defined by Internet use. - web design company, web designer, web design india
