Dear all,

I have ISA EE 2006. The web proxy clients connect to the HTTP using 8080.

I need to configure ISA servers to accept the connection to HTTP using many ports. Let's say the clients can connect to the HTTP using 8080, 80, 8001 &etc. does the ISA have this ability?

The proxy for the ISA by default runs on port 8080 If you need to use that port for something else you would have to change it But I don't recommend it if you are not confortable with the system.
Of couse you can use ISA for HTTP to connect using any port and as many as you would like.
All you have to do is create the rule using the console and apply it.
Having said that, can I ask what are you trying to accomplish?
Why would you want to redirect http traffic using port 8080?

Dear Vico1,

Thanks for your replay. I need to use 8080 in addition to other ports such as 80 and 8001.

In another words, I need the clients to access the http through 8080 or 80 or 8001.

How can I do this?

Yes you can.
In order to do that you must set ISA Web proxy to listen to another port instead of port 8080, then Create a rule for ISA to accept HTTP Request for the ports of your liking: 80, 81, 8080
1.-From ISA Management Console
2.-Expand your Server
3.-Expand Configuration
4.-Click on the "networks" pane
5.-Then Right Click on internal and click on properties.
6.- Click on web proxy Tab Then Change the port to what ever port you would like.
Here is a link that will help you:

After Changing the web proxy you can create the rules.
Good luck!

Thanks vico1,

But I don't need to change the port number; I need to add another port number. I want to keep 8080 and add another port like 80 or 8001.

Let's say that I have 3 clients:
Client 1 ------ he has 8080 port in his IE settings.
Client 2 ------ he has 80 port in his IE settings.
Client 3 ------ he has 8001 port in his IE settings.

I need all of them connect to ISA in their current setting without any change.

It cannot be done that way.
Or I do not know a way to do that.
You Could change the Script to redirect all those ports to 8080.
therefore the client would be using the automatic script configuration.
or you could add extra ISA servers.

I will look into it.
