I have ISA 2004 sp2 installed with a very sIMPLE edge configuration, with all the latest patches applied running on a W2k3 server machine. I do not run active directory, but I did replicate all the usernames and passwords from the client machines to the ISA machine. I have installed Firewall client on all the machines behind the ISA server from the shared installation folder, and they all picked up the proxy correctly and are able to navigate.
The problem is none of the client machines are showing up as Firewall clients sessions on the proxy, but instead are showing up as SecureNAT clients and as webproxy clients. Also all the user sessions show as anonymous instead of the current logged user. I disabled the webproxy feature, but still the firewall clients will not initiate a session.
I did enable firewall client listener, I enabled the firewall client support on the internal properties dialog box using the FQDN for my server. I also have auto discovery enabled on port 80. Additionally I have wpad entries for the DHCP server (My proxy server is also the DHCP and DNS server for the network).
When I enable authenticaton I get denied connection. When I disable it, they are able to navigate. I have 6 client machines running windows xp. I do not have active directory, but I do have them all under the same workgropup name. Out of the 6 machines, 3 of sometimes do get identified as FWC, and sometimes not. The other 3 never get identified as FWC.
a dumb question maybe, but I didn't found any other way to enable a "firewalll client listener" than checking the "Enable Firewall Client support for this network" on the properties of the internal network, which I've already did.... ... is there another reference to a "FWC listener"?
