I'm hoping that you can help me understand something.  I creatated an edge network in ISA  and I allowed unrestricted access.  How come the system policy rules include and enable DHCP but the server doesn't seem to give out DHCP until i configure a Firewall policy rule?  I am missing somethign I thought the whole Idea of the system rules was so that you don't have to create them all yourself.

The system policy enables the process of ISA acting in that role.
The firewall rule dictates where that traffic can pass to.

I get it thanks Keith.  I had the damn thing running on my domain controllor so nothing worked right.   Once I installed it properly it's fine.  

I guess that's how we learn
