Hi guys!

Hope you can help.

At our network (2003 Server AD Domain), all internal clients gain internet access by first going through our WebMarshal proxy server

We have an application that requires access/connects to an external ftp server.

At the moment, this works by configuring in the application the hostname of the WebMarshal proxy server.
Along with this, we have to enter a valid domain user account for authentication.

It wont work if we dont point the application to the WebMarshal proxy server.

What we want is the following:

- Bypass our WebMarshal proxy server to get Internet Access.

We have a server on our network that is an ISA Firewall Server.
On configuration of this isa server, the WebMarshall proxy server was configured for Web Access.

Could someone point me in the right direction as to how for this application, we can bypass the WebMarshal proxy server and go straight through to our ISA Server and then get Internet Access/

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Simon

You cannot. Web Marshall's job, like Surf Control, Smart Filter and others is to add additional filtering capabilities to ISA server which is the back-end engine.

if your administrator wishes to allow exceptions then suitable rules need to be created for that exception to take place on the ISA server.

If you are using an FTP client then this will not go through web marshall as it is not a proxy-based protocol. If you are using ftp through the web browser then the site needs to be added to Web marshall (as a permissible site) and the rule still needs to be added to ISA.

Are you the administrator?
