I have an ISA server functioning in a back-end configuration. I want to place a webserver in the DMZ. But to cuts costs down, can I install IIS on the ISA server itself to function as the internet facing webserver? This is an article that shows you can do it http://www.microsoft.com.nsatc.net/technet/isa/2000/proddocs/isadocs/cmt_webonisa.mspx?mfr=true

But is there any security issues to worry about?

There are security issues to consider.

One thing to use is "Socket Polling" to lock down any listening ports that will not being used.

Here are some articles to review:

Configuring IIS not to listen on the defualt ports and bind only to 127.0.0.1 local host IP would solve the issue?
