hello all.
I'm using an ISA 2003 firewall between my LAN and internet. My LAN has around 400 clients. now I have problem: some of users is infected with spyware, and it sends many mails, and use most the bandwith.

Using ISA 2003, how can I detech who is infected with spyware? or saying in other way, who use most my bandwith?

No such thing as ISA 2003 - its isa2000, 2004 or 2006.
If its isa2000 then you can use the bandwidth options and the ISA log files.

If its ISA2004 or ISA2006, the bandwidth control was removed.
Instead, open the ISA gui,
select monitoring - reports
Create and run a report for the required period and this will produce a decent html report of all activity, to where and by whom and from where.
Also, in the gui, select monitoring - logging.
click start query - this starts the live logging (realtime) monitor.

The problem is we cannot have a report on a specific port for each user

Again, what version of ISA are you actually running? Bandwidth reporting is not provided in isa2004/2006 so is not an isa fault; its a feature :)
There are add-ons/plug-ins that can be purchased to provide that functionality though.

If you want it more granular then goto the monitoring - logging section.
Edit the Query to use the criteria you want reported against and the time action to cover the period to report against. Select a single user if you wish
open the toolbox window on the right and select copy all to clipboard
Copy this into Excel and you can graph it to your hearts content.

Lastly, the data is all stored in an MSDE database. You can query this directly on the ISA box (ISA's security features will stop you querying the msde from another machine) to pull the info as you want.

As mentioned, ISA does not perform bandwidth loading so it is not a function of the product.
