  2. Hello laitbinh, Thanks....I alredy did check RainConnect and RainWall. The two products are recommended in hxxp://www.isaserver.org ,too It might take some time for me to purchase a third-party product. In mean time, for me to take the advantage of the slower leased line when the ADSL connection is not available, how should I configure the routes? RGDS Lakmal
  3. Hi, I have an ISA box (ISA Sever 2000 standard)configured with 3 NIC's. So far I was using a leased line connection (128 kbps) from a local ISP. Now Im getting an ADSL connection from a different ISP. Since I already have 3 NIC's in the ISA box, I can connect the ADSL line to the remainig NIC My questions are; 1. I know that I can set up the routing table on ISA box so that the ADSL connection (set as the default gateway with a lower metric value)will have preference over the slower leased line. Can sombody please explain how to set up the routes? 2. I have heard about NLB devices. Is it possible to use the two connections using one of those devices so that they are load balanced? 3. I didn't get a static IP for the ADSL connection. But I have one registered static IP for the leased line connection. Im using it to publish my mail and web servers. Will there be any affect for these servers after configuring the ADSL connection. 4. Is it possible to combine the two internet connections using ISA Server 2000 Enterprise Edition and configuring two ISA Servers in an Array with one internet connection for each server? Thanks and RGDS Lakmal

  5. Hi Kanwalkhalsa, Thank you so much for the tip. I appreciate it. I was able to resolve the problem by another way. The following article became very useful, hxxp://www.isaserver.org/tutorials/Publishing_A_Web_Site_Using_ISA_Server_Part_2.html I changed the port no (80) of the default website on ISA server to 801. Bingo...it started working Lakmal
  6. Hi, Im using ISA 2000 Server in my company. I have configured a web publishing rule to publish a web site hosted on one of the internal servers IIS is installed on the ISA server because Im using Trend Micro Interscan Message Security Suite for SMTP. The default web site is present and running. I have a registered DNS name (lets say www.abc.com) that maps to the public IP address of the external interface of the ISA server. The internal servers name is Test1 and the ip is The virtual directory's name is "application" (The virtual directory is created under the default web site which maps to a local folder on Test1) The web publishing rule maps to the Test1 server I can access the website, http://test1/application from the intranet. But I can't access http://www.abc.com/application from the internet I get a page cannot be displayed error www.abc.com correctly resolves to the public IP address of the external interface of the ISA server. Im sure DNS is working correctly. Then I tried to access http://www.abc.com from the internet. Then I get an Under Construction page. I found that this page is comming from the default web site on the ISA server computer and NOT from the default web site on the Test1 computer. This means that the web request is not getting redirected to the Test1 server from the ISA server What might be the cause? Help appreciated. Lakmal

    Exchange 2003

    Some Tips Installing Exchange 1. Make sure that the your AD infrastructure and DNS are properly in place 2. Run FORESTPREP and DOMAINPREP (Assuming you have a single domain..otherwise you have to run DOMAINPREP on each domain where you are going to have mail-enabled objects) 3. Install the first Exchange server into a new organization (Assuming you dont have an Exsisting Exchange Organization) Configuration at The ISA server I dont know the DNS setup at your Company.....do you maintain your own DNS servers (public as well as private)? Depending on situation you may have to adjust the MX records 1. You have to create a. A site and content rule for the DNS server b. A protocol rule c. Packet Filters (TCP and UDP 53) 2. Right click the Server Publishing container under Publishing and start the Secure Mail Server Wizard 3. Right click the Web Publishing container under Publishing and point to new, point to Publish Outlook Web Access Server Wizard Follow the Instructions in the wizards You can find all the details you need to know about Exchange and ISA in, www.MSexchange.org www.isaserver.org Hope you'll find this useful RGDS Lakmal

    Virtual PC

    Hello Forum Members, I haven't used Virtual Server or Virtual PC or VMware before but but Im going to try Virtual Server eval today............ My machine configuration is 1.8 GHz Intel P4 512 MB RAM 64 MB VGA Hard Drives - 2 (40GB and 60GB) Will the above configuration supports running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise, Windows 2000 Server and Windows NT Server 4.0? Lakmal
  10. Adding more to kippy's post............ Windows XP Professional cannot be used as a router. You need Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003 with Routing and Remote Access Service enabled Then you can configur it as a Multiprotocol software router, a VPN/Remote Access Server and a NAT/Basic Firewall. However, XP Professional CAN be configured with Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) But ICS has certain limitations over NAT ICS configure the computer hosting the ICS service to use the IP address You cant have any other private IP address ICS supports only one public IP in the external interface ICS computer act as a DHCP server for the clients. So you cant have another DHCP server in the network So..ICS is recommended for SOHO networks Windows Server 2003 is a good choice for NAT (when hardware devices are not affordable) Lakmal
  11. Although I havent tried this, it should be possible. The default gateway field in the TCP/IP properties dialog box for all internal adapters should be blank. Only the external adapter should have a default gateway. Construct the LAT (Local address Table) to include all the subnets Lakmal
  12. Thanks paiste2002 I will try this today evening. XP and 2003 are installed in hd0 and Linux is installed in hd1 (that would be hda hdb in linux terms I guess.....forgive me but I know little Linux) Would this affect the exisiting XP and 2003 installations by any chance? Thanks Lakmal
  13. Hi I have a computer which has Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 Enterprise and Red Hat Linux 9.0 installed. (Linux is installed on a seperate physical hard disk) Recently, I had to re-install Windows Server 2003 Enterprise editionn again and in the process I lost the GRUB Loader and it doesnt appear anymore. 2003 must have overwritten the boot sector. Is there a way of rectifying this problem using the Red Hat Installation CD's without re-installing Red-Hat again? Help is appreciated RGDS lakmal
  14. VLANs on a network allow the splitting up of one Physical Network into a set of seperate Virtural/Logical ones. When a packet enters a Switch it is tagged to say which VLAN the port it entered on is a member off. The packet can only leave the switch via another port with the same tag. These ports are refered to as untagged as the tag doesn't leave the Switch itself. This is fine until you want to multiplex your VLANs accross a single Wire and spread them accross switches, this is where 802.1q (A Substandard of Ethernet) comes in. You use ISL tagging with CISCO swithes but this is a proprietary standard for CISCO Ports using 802.1q are known as tagged ports. Using 802.1q tagging a port can be a member of multiple VLANs as a frame leaves the switch the appropriate tag is attached so that the Switch/Device at the other end of the wire. As a frame enters the switch the tag is inspected and packet only forward within the specified VLAN. Some of the uses of VLANs are Security Fault Isolation Network Scalability Modern Ethernet adapters also support 802.1q standard. Search the web for more details Cheers Lakmal
