But I was confused how to configure all these error pages. I searched in ISA help about how to configure these but no benefit.
Beside that, I mean how to force the default page of the client browser to be a url that I given. (e.g. I want the client whenever he launch his brwoser, goes to my Intranet homepage).
You can install the registry onto their machine. E.g. REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AboutURLs] "Intranet"="http://www.yourdomain.com" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "Default_Page_URL"="about:Intranet" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] "Start Page"="about:Intranet" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] "LegalNoticeCation"="Authorized Users Only"
Make sure you change the above "...yourdomain.com" to the URL of your choice.
Next, have the user run the Internet Options in IE and then select Use Default in the Home Page setting. Good luck.
But it will be very hard to apply this to several machines since we r a big organization.
I want t know if there a solution from ISA itself to force the user to see our Intranet Homepage whenever he launch a web browser without installing anything else (e.g. IE SDK) or touchiong the client machine.
