My ISA Server is set up as a firewall and a proxy, I want to get the ISA server to allow E Donkey to run on a machine that sits behind the ISA firewall. I am a total newbie to ISA firewall.

    These are the ports that eDonkey uses:

    TCP 4661: This port is the default port that an eDonkey server listens for connections on.

    TCP 4662: This port is used for clients to connect to each other. If you have a firewall, this is the port that needs to be forwarded to the computer which is running eDonkey.

    UDP 4665: This port is open on an eDonkey server, and is used for clients to communicate with a server other than the one they are currently connected to.

    You will need to first create custom protocol definitions for the above mentioned ports and then create access rules that allows the selected IP addresses internally (or by users) to send those protocols through the ISA server. You will also  need to install the ISA firewall client on the PC or make the ISA server the PC's default gateway. If you let us know if this is ISA server 2000 or 2004 would be a big help.
