We are unable to get a specific Java app from http://taonline.mbsbooks.com/taonline.html to work from our Windows Vista Enterprise comptuer with the lastest Java. The computer has the ISA Firewall client, but it seems as if the FWC isn't picking up Java's requests. According to Microsoft the Java Control Panel should specify a direct connection rather than using proxy information. Since this didn't fix the problem I specified the proxy server information and then the site went forward loading part of the java app. THen it attempts to access the app on port 2025 but fails. Watching the ISA logging that port is never even accessed on the firewall. It seems as if Java isn't getting anywhere at all.
On a side note our clients are not issued a gateway, but have the ISA client installed and are also configured as web proxy clients.

JFYI... If that is the correct page you sent it will not work in my current ISA 2006 environment on my Vista workstation either using the firewall client with IE or Mozilla. It partially loaded in Mozilla then seemed to freeze while looking for a plug-in.
I would call the company and have them work through it with you. It is possible that others may be having a similar problem and they may be able to work through it with you.
I ended up biting the bullet and giving everyone a default gateway. It seems that not having a default gateway is causing more problems than it is worth. Outlook 2007 also complains if you do not have a default gateway (there is a registry fix for this). I have changed my access rule to only allow my subnet access by authenticated users. This should prevent someone from plugging into our network and getting Internet access.
i have installed a server 2003 DC, dns and dhcp in another computer whit the ip 192.168.1.2 i have to nic's in the isa server one for internal another for external. internal 192.168.1.1 dns 192.168.1.2 external 192.168.2.2 gateway 192.168.2.1(router) i have a isa server installed and configured whit rules that permits access to all protocol's from internal and local host to external and internal to all users.
i had configured internal network as you can see below: addresses: start 192.168.1.0 end 192.168.1.255 domains: *ignitronic.net domain_ignitronic (i think this is a workgroup) web proxy: web proxy client: enabled http: enabled port 80 Firewall client: enabled isa sever name: isaicarus automatically detect settings: enabled use automatic configuration script: enabled Auto discover: enabled port 80
i had created a wpad on dns server you can see below
Alias name: wpad FQDN: wpad.ignitronic.net FQDN for target host: isaicarus.ignitronic.net
i had created application settings to outlook as you can see in the image below...
aplication key value outlook LocalBindTcpPorts 0-65535 outlook LocalBindUdpPorts 0-65535 note: i had try to enable outlook before puting the value to 1 or 0 and do not work for any clients(xp or vista). this way are working for xp and for vista whit the workaroud(*)
i had installed in clients isa client application.
problems occurring: vista clients can't find server isa, so no web no mail! :(
things that are fine: Xp clients have web and mail smtp and pop3
* workaround to vista: to access to web i had placed a fixed ip, gateway and dns server but unfortunately i can't send email.
what are happening whit my network? tks for try helping me and if you don't understand something please ask.

Is your firewall on? If so is port 1745 being blocked in the logs... This is the port that the FW client uses to communicate with ISA. Also if you type your auto config url into a browser can you download the script. If not something else may be awry.
Do a live monitor on a Vista client from ISA to see if anything is being blocked.
Configure your FW client manually with the FQDN of ISA and just the IP. See if this makes a difference.
