Hi,
I know this is probably not the right place(but it is where I get all my answers).
Is there any way to run the Firewall client on vista...or a workaround for the time being??
Im surprised that Microsoft is quiet about this??
Thanks
Leslie

Hi Leslie,

I think that the FWC for ISA 2006 will work on Vista, but I can't vouch for that as I haven't tested it.

HTH,
Tom

    You will need to use the FWC included in ISA 2004.  When starting the FWC after installation, Vista will say there is a compatibility issue.  Just dismiss the message and the FWC 2004 client works just fine.

    If you don't have 2004, just grab the Eval from Microsoft's site and you can extract the FWC.

    Hey guys,

    At this point it's not supported, although it can be used and seem to work OK.

    HTH,
    Tom

    I don't get why Vista/Longhorn compatibility wouldn't be in ISA 2006 from the get-go.  Afterall, Microsoft uses array after array of ISA Servers, and they promote using Vista internally where possible.

    At least the 2004 client does work, but here's hoping they have the 2006 client working on release of ISA 2006.
