However, I was able to detect the ISA Server manual by entering my ISA firewall hostname.
Please help. Many Thanks in advance.

AmyB, you mentioned that Jim Harrison's download includes instructions on how to get WPAD to work on SBS. I looked on isatools.org and all i could find was http://www.isatools.org/testautoconfig.vbs but this doesn't seem to do anything. To which downloading were you talking about so i can give it a rad and trty and get this auto discover working on SBS? Thanks Jed
I don't want to use DHCP because i don't want users on my domain to have local admin rights. From all the forum i've read it is something to do with SBS and apparently there is a fix out there for it so i can use the DNS option, does anyone know how to get this working?
The link for the SBS wpad download is on my blog at isainsbs.blogspot.com. The wpad is currently hosted on Jim Harrison's website though not in the official listings. I spoke to Jim this week and he had some great news. The SBS wpad files will be available on the ISA downloads page at Microsoft's website in the near future. They're just neatening it up now.
Amy i read your post Wednesday, July 20, 2005 Getting the Firewall Client to Automatically Detect ISA. There is a link to sbs_wpad.zip (http://isatools.org/sbs_wpad.zip) But it does not work. How do i get this file. Thanks Jed
MRIS thanks for you reply, in short yes your right. The reason i thought that users had to be a member of the local administrator group for DHCP autp discovery to work was that i have been reading Tom Shinder's Configuring ISA Server 2004 and in Chapter 5 ISA 2004 Client Types and Automating Client Provisioning is specifly says for DHCP Support that user must be logged on as local administrator. But is this Microsoft artical http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/isa/2004/plan/automaticdiscovery.mspx is says that this is only the case for Windows 2000 or Firewall Client 2000. So if you are running Windows XP this statement is NOT TRUE.
So for people running SBS 2003 SP1 using DNS to publish automatic discovery information is not an option because of IIS/Exchange using port 80 so you need to use the DHCP to publish automatic discovery information on a different port eg port 6666 as discribed in the above Microsft artical. Note I did NOT have to apply the registy string SkipAuthenticationForRoutingInformation as describe in this artical to get automatically detect ISA server working. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;885683
Hope all this info at least helps someone. Thanks Jed
