ISA Placement Question

Posted on 2006-10-20

Last Modified: 2013-11-16
Currently we have an ISA server setup in a DMZ on a PIX 515.  It use to be a frontend for OWA, but now I would like to use it to monitor web use, and block websites that users shouldn't be using while at work.  I understand that in order for this to happen I will need to have the ISA between the PIX and the rest of the network, but we use our PIX for a Site to Site tunnel and I don't want to block traffic going through the tunnel to our servers on our network.  Any ideas on the best way to accomplish my goals?

Thanks

Are you using two nic's in the ISA (like an internal firewall) or just using it as a proxy device? Also, which version of ISA are you using?

We are using ISA 2004, and more specificly V4.0.2163.213.  It has two nics, one going to the PIX and one going to the internal network, but currently it isn't being used for anything.

Simply point web traffic towards the ISA internal NIC for monitoring web access . This can be done as simply as checking the proxy server box in your browser and pointing it to the ISA server .

I'll leave it to you then Prue. If the user still has an issue after you have finished I'll jump back in and go through the ISA side.
