ISA Server 2000 / client acess to internet issue

Hi,

I have a network running sbs server 2000, with ISA Server installed and serving internet.

The internet is accessed via this server, via a USB modem.

Some clients work, some don't. I noticed that a local ISA Proxy program is installed on some machines.

Is there some way to get rid of ISA server / local program and just have the internet route out via the attached USB Modem on the server?

I'm just looking for a simple, reliable solution as this doesn't seem to be working consistently.

I think it is likely that you have a difference because work stations will have been added to the SBS domain differently. If they have all been added through the correct method, they will all be consistent (at least to the point of the ISA client etc).

If you want to remove ISA server, that has to be your call; obviously it is a significant part of your internal security.

Assuming you are not running a VPN through the SBS server, ISA can be removed but I would strongly recommend you 'moved' your usb internet connection to an ethernet-based one. You will also need to uninstall the ISA clients on all work stations.

I wold also suggest a good firewall for the outside as you have now removed the servers firewall.
