I'm using ISA 2006 standard edtion with Websense installed to provide content filtering.

To support filtering per user, Websense uses an Agent (on another machine) to provide usernames to the filtering service. This works mostly, but sometimes the user isn't correctly identified so the Websense software forces a prompt to the client to enter their domain name and password.

Problem is, when set up in this way my web publishing stops working (in this case OWA). What seems to be happening is that the websense web filter is getting in the way somehow. Sure enough if i disable the option in Websense to prompt the user my OWA site works fine again.

Is there any way to tell ISA to ignore traffic from a specified internal ip? Or can anyone think of a more cunning plan to overcome this?

Apologies if I've not described my problem in enough detail!

I supposed you could create an HTTP or HTTPS Server Publishing Rule to do this, but it would require a second external IP address and a different FQDN.

HTH,
Tom

Thanks Tom, I had a similar theory.

Websense have a different set up solution that works as a stand alone installation - thus meaning none of their components are on my ISA server.

I'm going to work towards this as a sure fire way of letting ISA do what it does best without interference!

Regards

Ben

That sounds like a good plan.

Thanks!
