Maybe I'm missing something basic, but I've got a situation where we need to run a Juniper secure sockets app to access a providers site via a telnet connection. This connection is by some ip addresses, not a name or url. If I disable the FWC it works fine, so I'm assuming that's because of SecureNAT (I put a route to the providers subnet in my backbone router pointed at the ISA server). Is there a way to force access to this ip address to use SecureNAT and not go through the FWC?

You can configure the firewall client to ignore communication generated by a particular application. In the ISA management console, expand the configuration node and highlight 'general'. Click on the 'define firewall client settings' link, then select the 'application settings' tab. Click on the 'new' button, enter the name of the application without the extension (e.g. telnet.exe would simply be telnet), select 'disable' for the key, and enter '1' for the value (without the quotes, of course). Refresh the firewall client by clicking on the 'detect now' button, or by recycling the Firewall Client agnet server (net stop fwcagent, net start fwcagent).
