i cannot connect to xbox live at all :-( i configured protocol definitions for 3074 TCP out, 3074 UDP send/rec. and for testing purposes i have a protcol rule "allow everything". the xbox is connected wireless via a linksys wet11 and can be pinged from the inside. the xbox test says: ip ok, dns ok but "xbox live could not be found". in a trace with netmon i saw that the xbox made a dns resolution but nothing more. after an examination of my isa logs i found the following entry:
so the protocol rule i have is: action: allow protocol: all ip traffic schedule: always applies to: any request
so i thought in any request is the xbox included? yes the xbox is a secure nat client, it¦s gateway points direct to the isa server. i will try to make an explicit xbox protocol rule with all protocols and ports included only for the xbox ip.....

You don't have to create a packet filter to open kerbos ports. The setup should be straight forward:
Define 2 Protocols:
Xbox live 1 (3074 TCP) OUT Xbox live 2 (3074 UDP) Send Receive
Create a rule to use these protocols as well as DNS Query (53 UDP) & Kerbos-Sec(88 UDP)which are already defined. Setup your xbox as a SecureNAT client with static IP and set the rule to apply ONLY to that static IP.
If this doesn't work then the problem has to be somewhere else in the way you configured ISA.
Shikwan your setup and others similar worked for me the 2nd time around. I read about the UDP port 3074 Send/Recieve mine somehow got reversed when i created the 2 3074 port protocol definitions I have a default allow rule for All ip traffic. The only issue i had with an ip was i can create either a static or dhcp ip but when it gets to the dns i have to specify my external isp dns ip's or it wont connect. That works great now. Before i could connect to the xboxserver and get an Ok for the IP settings but when connecting to a game it would say it could not connect. Alls workin great now! Hope this helps some others.
