isa server 2004 newbie question

I am really new into isa server 2004.
This is my first installation.
I have a few quick questions.
How can I open port 443 and 2002? I need to open them for a program called 'logmein', that is a little program on the client pc's so I can take over the pc's.
So the logmein program is on the client pc's, and needs 'access' to the outside.
Can somebody please give me a quick step-by-step on how to get this program 'online' again ... .
The only pc where the logmein is able to get access to the outside is on the server itself.
(btw this is isa 2004 on small business server 2003 premium)

    Not sure if I understand your requirement.

    Do you want 443 & 2002 to be allowed access from the internet into your network or from the inside network to the Internet?

    Depend a little bit from your base configuration.

    Goto firewall policies, there is a "Toolbox" tab on the right side (Tasks is enabled by default). If you have selected toolbox, you see all predefined protocols.
    443 is defined by default (as it is HTTPS). For port 2002 you may add a new protocol. Click New --> Protocol --> Type a name --> add port TCP outgoing from 2002 to 2002 --> Next and Finish.

    Now you have definition for both ports.

    On the left side, you see all defined firewall rules. You may have either a rule, which allows all outgoing traffic (which means all defined protocols), or you may have to add two firewall rules, one for each port definition.

    Select the Tasks tab and select "new access rule"
    --> select a name
    --> Aktion: allow
    --> protocols: add your both protocols (select HTTPS and your new protocol from the list)
    --> From: Internal
    --> To: External

    --> All users - all times - all content types (default)

    Thank you very much for the info !!!
    I tested a new logmein installation a a second server, and it works.
    I also did some live logging, and it seems like all logmein traffic passes through port 443.

    I disabled logmein on that second server, and enabled it again (that is a simple test to see if that little program get's back online...).
    That took some time, and it didn't go online, but after a minute it got online, strange ... .

    Anyway, thank you for the info!!
