there are many different advantages AND disadvantages if you come from ISA2K .... depends on what you're looking for! There are many features wich are better in administration an configuration on ISA04. ISA04 is more save in the first start than 2k because there are many things you have to do "by feet" to get 2k as secure as the ISA04 on a Win2003Server.

Tell more about your question plz for a more concrete answer!

I am unhappy with the way W2K will leave the OS unprotected for a few seconds before starting the ISA firewall service on a reboot.  This is a major fault that I address when reviewing firewalls.  I dont know if ISA2004 handles this better but it is something that needed to be addressed.  Are your only inquiring on ISA or are you open to other options?

@TRobertson: You're right!! One of the worst problems on 2k .... They've fixed it in ISA2004. The OS-Protection overall is much better than before.

@3ezz
but what problem is it?

Either I dont think that a problem with java on the clients is to be solved by upgrading the ISA-Server.

Apart from some new techniques in webpublishing and serverpublishing with the latest sp and addons you can do allmost everything with ISA2K.

I think you wont solve your problems with an upgrade ...

but the new vers. ISA2004 on win2003server is a better solution with newer features and more effective to use/administrate

But on an update think of the costs spending money on downtime, licenses and so on without bringing a solution of your two problems!!!

Perhaps that helps you on your decision?! Greetz, Knut.
