Setting ISA to Listen for Blackberry on Port 3101

I'm trying to set up BES on a combination of a Win2K server and SBS2000 (the SBS has the Exchange server). I can't seem to find out how to get the SBS to listen on 3101 as instructed. Currently I'm on the phone to Microsoft, but they're not looking too hopeful! Any one know how to set this up? I've set up two packet filters to allow incoming and outgoing IP traffic on 3101 but it hasn't made any difference. If all else fails I'll but the stupid thing back in the post to where it came from!!

Have a look at Tom Schindler's (the ISA guru) excellent ISA site at http://isaserver.org  If you can't find anything there, among the well organized documentation,  the associated discussion list should be able to help.

I had a look, but couldn't find anything. I think my problem is more one of an ISA nature than a Blackberry one. Unfortunately, I've never had a piece of software which didn't work using the standard network settings before, and it looks like there's something in the ISA server which is stopping any client machines from communicating using anything other than the proxy server.

I agree, definately an ISA issue rather than BB.....so go right to the source...open: http://www.isaserver.org/pages/links.asp
and on the bottom righ-thand corner of the page, you will find a link to join the ISA discussion group....post the question there....this really is going to the horse's mouth...Shindler himself, Jim Harrison, John Tolmachoff and other top ISA people read the list regularly and respond to questions....if you are going to get an answer anywhere, you will get it there....these are the guys who troubleshoot ISA for MS........

Ultimately discovered that the problem was that I'd cleverly set our BES server's basic TCP/IP to pick up its IP address from DHCP, which was all wrong. Microsoft told me how to re-configure the IP settings, so that it has now a fixed IP, and can get through the ISA server to listen on port 3101.
