Dear Security Expert,

At my company i have the rol of systemadmin and therefor i also control the Microsoft ISA Server 2004. The configuration is no problem at all and everything is working very well. Recently i made a rule wich enables me to block websites i dont want to people at my company to visit (chat sites, adult sites etc..).

If someone would now go to a blocked site they get the error code 403: Forbidden. This is perfect because i want this to happen.

So far so good but now comes my question:

Our website desginer and me have made a custom htm page wich people should get to see when they go to a blocked website and i want to use this only i have no clue where i can find the default error code htm pages wich now come up when a site is forbidden.

I would just like to replace the current 403.htm for the one we made by ourself (our company logo is in it together with the reason why we blocked the website) but i cant find it anyways on the server where ISA Server 2004 is installed on.

I have a feeling it will be a very easy answer but so far i couldnt find it at any site i searched on google and searching by myself on the server didnt help much either.

I hope u can help me out with my question.

With kind regards,
