Hi guys,

Need some help in here!!

I have peer to peer network with around 70 computers, have a dlink router with DHCP on it. Im planning to deploy ISA server 2000 in order to filter inbound and outbound traffic in more efficient way. But before to go further, i want to make sure if it is possible to filter out selected computers or users from accessing some unnecessary website and no internet at all for some other computers, since i don't have Active Directory that allow me to create groups. Im not sure how to do it....

Any suggestion or help are wholeheartedly appreciated..

Hi,

Why not go with ISA Server 2006 !!

You will be working with a product that is more than 8 years old, technology since that time changed alot, and if you need to control your LAN, then go with ISA 2006.

I'm no expert on ISA but from what I know the answer is yes it's possible. There will be more work involved because  of the lack of directory service but you should still be able to do it.

I'd aggree with elmajdal about ISA 2006 though and while you're at it I'd consider installing SBS2003 premium (which comes with ISA). That way you could get a bit of control over your network and get tons of other advantages. That being said SBS is designed for networks of no more than 75 so if you're planning on growing anytime soon you might need to go the while hog with server 2003 (or 2008 I guess).

I am really not sure about doing such things with ISA 2000, but 100% sure that you can with ISA 2004/2006.

I do all of those things in our environtment all the time and ISA works great for such tasks (2004/2006).

good luck.

In ISA2000 (and later versions) its certainly possible to create rulesets based upon the Ip address of the client computer doing the requests... but if your using DHCP those IP addresses can easily change! Hence, why NTdomains/ActiveDirectory is a far better idea because you can tie those rules to the logged in user.
It's not possible to use simply peer-to-peer networks and their userIDs as there is no know single repositry for verifying who is who.
The suggestions mentioned before about usinging something like SBS (or 'full blown' Windows server have merit because of the additional level of control you get + all the other benefits like single file stores with controlled access etc etc.
SBS is great as you can also get Exchange mail. Yes its an additional expense, but certainly worth considering 'moving up in the world'
Check out http://www.microsoft.com/sbs to see what the benefits are
