My current network setup is all my internet traffic is going through a linux server (192.168.1.1). I changed the gateway to my SBS server at 192.168.1.4.
If I set a client computer on the proxy 192.168.1.4 (SBS server) on port 8080 it will redirect to this gateway. I do not want to have to do this, i would rather everyone automatically use this gateway without having to change proxy settings in Internet Explorer on each computer.
The problem is that there is no place to put in the port 8080 where I change which gateway the router uses. I tried just putting in 192.168.1.4 and it does not work so I am assuming that somewhere in the ISA there is a setting keeping traffic only working on port 8080. Where can I open this up?
Hey, I am using Group Policy actually right now to assign the proxy and port; however, there are over 20 users here that use laptops and take them home at the end of the day to work from home on their wifi and it would be great if I didn't get calls from every one of them asking how to remove the proxy settings after they get off work while I am at home or out with friends lol.
The thing is when I set the gateway to the ISA server which is also my Small business server 2003, it takes the users to the same page no matter where they try to go. It is one of the default pages built into SBS 2003. It hosts a lot of things like Outlook Web Access and Remote Web Workplace and the page it takes us all to is kind of like a default page thing but if I was to put the computer on proxy settings 192.168.1.4 (sbs server) and set port to 8080 the Internet works great. Clear as mud? lol
Open the ISA console. Look at the blue bar at the top of the window.
For the other problem: You don't need to use group policy to configure the browser manually. Install the firewall client (found in the mspclnt share on your server) and it will configure the browser AND automatically know when the laptop user is working locally or remotely. It will configure and un-configure the browser for you on the fly.
All users need to use the internal NIC of the ISA servera as their default gateway. You can configure ISA through the connect to the internet wizard in SBS to use your linux server as it's gateway.
