Hello Thom,

As Beta tester I tried the public beta of windows longhorn beta3 microsoft released a few days ago. I want to install ISA Server 2006 on longhorn , the setup runs smoothly , but when I finished the firewall services are not installed. When I try in custom setup to install ISA Server services I get the message that it is not supported under this operating system. So at this moment it will not run on longhorn. Do you think it has something to do because it's still a beta and it will be fixed in next release? or is there another reason.?

Please let me know
Thanks

Andy

thanks thom,

But  I already found it on the microsoft site that longhorn not supporting ISA server 2006.
But I'm wondering if it will be working in the final release of longhorn or in the next version of ISA server . I can't imagine that when the final release of longhorn is coming out  ISA Server is not running on it.
They don't say anytihing if it will be working on a a final release from iSA Server or Longhorn, do you know something about that ?

let me know

Thanks Andy

Hi Andy,

The next version will run only on Longhorn, but no current version will ever run on Longhorn.

Hi Tarek,

Yes, and I suspect it will only be 64 bit

Yah i believe this is true, as in the case with MS Exchange 2007 .

BUu is it really needed for a Firewall ?! ISA Server does not permit anything to pass to and through it Unless its been defined in its Rules !

Hi Tarek,

The main advantage I see right now is the great increase in non-paged pool memory, which will greatly enhance it's ability to withstand DoS attacks. In fact, on Longhorn, I suspect that the ISA Firewall will be more resistant to DoS attacks than any other firewall on the market.

In addition, there are some significant performance enhancements in the Longhorn TCP/IP stack, which will make the ISA Firewall a multi GB firewall. Right now, on Win2003, it's limited to around 1.5Gbps.

Tom

Hi Tom,

It's been always the best Firewall , either on Win2000 or 2003  

So no suspect the good work will continue with longhorn.

With the features specific to longhorn , i need to read more about them.

Thanks for sharing info with us.

Tarek
