ISA at home - 17.Mar.2010 5:36:33 PM

Hey guys,

I don't know if this is a silly question, but i don't have a lot of experiance on servers.
Anyway, i have installed ISA 2006 on my home server and the server is a Domain Controller, i want to control internet access for all home users.
Non of the client pc's at home are members of the domain, so would it still be possible to route all internet traffic thru the ISA server or no?
And if the answer is yes, how could it be done, any special configuration needed?
I have a ADSL line conncet to a Netgear router, and the server has one 1 LAN card connected to the router, all other clients connct wirelessly.

In advance, thank you

are you running ISA on your Domain Controller?

your ISA server needs also to be proper configuration. if your server is going to use only 1 nic, your server acts like proxy.

i would suggest you do the ISA on different server..

I've tried this ISA in 1 nic before, but I prefer to have 2 nic and have my workstation in a SecureNAT

well...seem like you have no choice to install ISA on your Domain Controller even it's not recommended...

Why donīt you just get rid off DC?

OK, then Iīd go with Steveīs suggestion of virtualize your environment. Buy a new hardware or more RAM to your current machine.

Paulo Oliveira.
