ISAserver.org - Monthly Article Update Hi ISAlist, New articles added to ISAserver.org last month: Title: Enabling the ISA Server 2004 VPN Server Author: Thomas Shinder Summary: The ISA Server 2004 VPN server changes the VPN remote access playing field by allowing you to control what protocols and servers to which VPN clients can connect. VPN client access controls can based on user credentials submitted when the client logged onto the VPN server. This enables you to create user groups that have access to a specific server using a specific protocol or set of protocols. You no long need to worry about your VPN clients browsing all the servers on the corporate network. The VPN client will only connect to the resources they require, and no others.

This means if you enable forms-based authentication on a Web listener accepting incoming Web connections, then no other authentication method can be used. This is problematic for users who have only a single IP address bound to the external interface of the ISA Server 2004 firewall and need to publish both the OWA and Exchange Mobile Access sites (such as OMA, Active-Sync and Exchange RPC/HTTP.

This was a major problem for ISA firewall administrators who wanted to bring ISA firewalls into the corporate network by placing one at a branch office. These firewall admins reasoned that if they could bring the ISA firewall into the branch office, they would be able to show off its strong application layer filtering and user/group based authentication, and then they?d be able to bring the ISA firewalls into the Main office. ISA 2004 firewalls fix this problem. Check inside to find out how!
