favorite!

You've been busy!  ..just a couple of pieces for ya..

- Browser service: if someone is using SBS2K, they have to have the
Browser
running as it's required by a DC.
- WINS settings: I also ditch the "Use LMHOSTS" setting.  Win2K and
later
OS's prefer DNS to WINS / NBNB for name resolution and if you're not
using
the LMHOSTS file, the system just wastes time dredging it up.
- Packet Filtering: problem #2 for enabling fragment filtering;
streaming
media.  If you enable this, you also limit yourself to streaming below
100K.
- Log Files: Yay!  Another log reader in the group!!  Outside of the
help
files, the ISA logs are the most informative things on the server
itself.
    One dissention; add "Rule#1" and "Rule#2" to your logging efforts;
these
will (when isahf54 is applied) assist rule troubleshooting.
- LAT/LDT: one additional note; add your external domain _IF_ you've
installed an internal DNS zone to avoid the dreaded 14120 errors, then
you
want this zone in the LDT.
- HotFixes: add a list of the "must have" hotfixes.  I can help if you
want..

..otherwise, very nicely done!  I guess I'll have to flesh out my "Kill
the
14120 errors once and for all" article, huh?
