 Hello Dan,

I am so glad to hear that you finally got it working. I was beginning to think 
it was not possible. I did publish it as a "server" but there must be something 
else I am missing. I do not play around with ISA enough to remember all the 
settings. I setup the ports in protocol definitions is this the only place I 
need to do that? We are running ISA 2000. Thank you for your help,

  This sounds like a similar situation I ran into before.  We had a trial 
period with a PolyCom unit over a year ago (we were running ISA2000 back then). 
 It is a portable device that you were supposed to be able to plug into any 
network and it would just magically work with teleconferencing.  Looking at the 
Tandberg website, the unit looks different, but basically the same type of 


  Well, I plugged it in, and of course it didn't work.  So, I spent many hours 
creating the right ports definitions, trying to get the gatekeeper working, 
etc. No matter what I did, it would not connect through the ISA server.  Sound 


  Finally, it dawned on me that in order for the unit to work, it had to accept 
inbound requests.   So, I published the unit as a "server", using the ports in 
the setup menus as a reference on what ports to redirect to that unit.  Then, 
it finally started working!  


  It's not a great solution, but it's much-much better than losing your ISA

  Hello All,


  After following the advice on this list and researching everything I could 
find about the Gatekeeper service I have been unable to make it work correctly 
so, I know it is not a popular subject, but does anyone have any suggestions as 
to the best hardware firewall I could get to replace ISA Server? I really don't 
want to leave ISA Server behind, but the Tandberg Video Conferencing MUST work!


  Thank you for your help,
