Website not visible externally, but ok internally ISA 2004
Posted on 2007-07-26
Hope someone can help.
Here's the setup first.
We have a web server with multiple websites. An ISA server with multiple IP addresses.
I created a rule in the ISA server to listen on an external IP (the IP is only for use with the website) and forward to the web server which shows the website.
The website is set up on port 2080 and the ISA rule translates port 80 to 2080.
So i guess first question is, does this sound like the right set up? We're going to be hosting about 3 websites which will all need SSL and from what i've read that means they need their own IP addresses. Also from what i've read, the IP address that the websites use will be lost once ISA passes the request to the webserver so they have to be set up on the webserver to use the internal IP address on different ports with ISA rules to forward everything correctly.
The problem then assuming the set up is correct is i can access the website on the internal network but not externally. DNS was changed about 2 days ago but it's not pinging externally(it's ok internally).
As a test i put it through the google translator as i guess that will act as exteral access and got ..
# Error Code 1460: Timeout
# Background: The gateway could not receive a timely response from the website you are trying to access, a DNS server, or another gateway server. This might indicate that the network is congested or that the website is experiencing technical difficulties.
Is it the case that ISA is either not configured correctly or blocking it for some reason?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for reading.
