Is there anyone at all that has this up and working behind a ISA firewall? I have seen a lot of posts but none "really" telling me that this works and how to get it to work.

The file transfer works without problems. But i am not able at all to get voice or video out from the MSN Messenger.

I have installed the Firewall Client, and followed different posts to get this to work, but voice/video just states "Connecting to...", and then disconnection..

Could someone send me a protocol definition or something that actually works? Please

Ehh.. Yes of course, but this is already tested.. And has nothing whatsoever to do with the "voice/video" functions of MSN Messenger..

Thanx for the tips tho..

going down the same road, was hoping someone had been there already. I wonder if the voice is using a different port?

Hi,

I am also in the same boat, mine MSN file transfer too does not work. Can you let me know the protocol you defined. When I make a file transfer I get the Error Message

" Your File Tranfer Connection is blocked plz contact your system administrator "

On the Client side I have Firewall Client configured and Authentication on the ISA Server is based on NT Authentication.

Help would be apprecited....

I did get the filetransfer to work by setting up a Protocol Rule that "allows all" from my internal network. (Allow all both ways). And i got voice working if the person on the outside (that was directly connected to the internet - dialup) initiated the chat. But if i try to initiate.. no go.

This all makes me wonder if the firewall client is configured right.. Or if it works with Windows XP at all...

Since there is a major lack of "sucsessful" posts around this topic.. i would actually assume that MS has got a problem here...

Do anyone have any good tips in configuring the Firewall Client? How to "know" what application name to put to append settings? I did a little test by using CuteFTP (ftp client), and no matter what i did put in the Firewall client.. It had no matter whatsoever.. (also tried the wspcfg.ini method described in the ISA help file)

Hey Guys,

Try this and let me know how it works. I use NetMeeting and the H.323 for voice and video, so I haven't had the need to monkey around with MSN mangler. Let me know if these work, and we'll make a big deal of it in the next newsletter.

Thanks!

Tom

> This step is just as important as the port numbers for file transfers to
work. What this does it this: When MSN Messenger asks the computer it is
running on "What is the IP address of this computer?" the system will give
it the inside IP. Then when you try to send files to people, the remote
client tries to connect to the IP of your inside network. Now we all know
that this can never happen. So what you need to do is "fake out" MSN
Messenger when it asks for the IP of the local computer. When you have this
NameResolutionForLocalHost set, the Firewall Proxy client will give it the
IP address of the external interface on the ISA server instead. Now when
you try to send files to someone, they get the IP of the ISA server and
since you have the secondary ports set up, it forwards the request to your
MSN Messenger client and everything just works. :-) Dont forget to have
your Firewall client update its settings after you do this so it gets the
new information.

Does not help.
I must state that i use the firewall client, and Windows XP Pro. I have posted this before, but i will do it again :

Is the firewall Client 100% compatible with XP? I tried as an experemental thing to add an application setting for CuteFTP, that would resolv "NameResolutionForLocalHost=L" and thus FORCE it to resolve local IP adress, so that the PORT command would fuck up.. but it did not.. I also tried to set it up with a false proxy.. false remotebindtcp +++ anything, but NO settings whatsover would do anything.. (And i also tried the "wspcfg.ini" file described in the help file.. but no avail..)

Is there any information useful with examples for how to set up the darn Firewal Client?? The information in the help files are not "that" informative..

Please help me.. Driving me crazy.. moments away to revert back to RRAS.. That way i could direct map ports..
