Hi i need to open a port for a SSL to 2087, but so far i am getting no joy from what i thought would be a relativly simple process.

I have done the following things with no joy..

1: Created a new firewall policy with
clicking on the ports section and chaing it to Limit access to traffic from this range of source ports: 2087
from Internal
to anywhere

I put this as number 1 on the list of policys so it ran first but i still got the error message.

I then tried creating my own Protocol in the Toolbox calling is SSL 2087 and giving it the range 2087 and outbound.

i then created a another policy which had the same settings as the previous except that instead of using https and chaning the port it just goes to SSL 2087.

Again i put this first on the plicy list and again still no joy.. i get the same error message saying that ISA is blocking the port.

If i go to the monitoring section i get the following messages for when i try to access to port:

Initiated Connection
then Cloed Connection

Also under rules it is not coming up withanything?

Why is it not running the Firewall rule that i created?

Any ideas creatly recieved
