I am a bit confused as to what ISA server actually does. I walked into a network that uses a proxy server for internet access for about 200 users. It has ISA server 2006 installed on it. If ISA server was removed, could I still use that server for a proxy server or is ISA the program that makes the proxy server the proxy server?

I realize that ISA is firewall also, but what is its exact functionallity and what else can I do with it?
