I'm trying to get my head around how to configure ISA server, and need a bit of guidance. I've read bits and pieces but haven't been able to put it together in my head.
If I understand correctly, in a "edge" configuration( LAN -> ISA -> WAN), the ISA server gets assigned a DNS server and GATEWAY address ONLY on the LAN side.
My question then is, how does the ISA server know where to send packet requests for the internet?!?!??? It just doesn't seem to make sense. I currently have it setup so that the LAN and WAN both have DNS server addresses, and the WAN side has a gateway IP (and this seems to work... albeit with some issues)
I still don't understand this part though "Your internal network needs some method of resolving Internet names." doesn't that imply that my internal network is connected to the internet some way OTHER than the ISA server? Or does that mean that my DNS server connected to the internet through the ISA server to retrieve DNS updates?
EDIT: Thanks for that link, it's very informative, I'll work through that then let you know if I still have issues!

It seems to be running ok now, however I can't connect to the ISA server via RDC, I have to log on locally.
As far as I can tell I've enabled RDC on the ISA server, and created a firewall rule to allow internal connections to RDC. However I can't access it (I can't ping it either which I don't know if this is related). The web proxy works fine though.
