Hello there,

I am running ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition as a web proxy. Recently a user had to access a site via SSL, but on port 10000.
Here's what the browser returned:

Network Access Message: The page cannot be displayed
 
Technical Information (for Support personnel)
Error Code: 502 Proxy Error. The specified Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) port is not allowed. ISA Server is not configured to allow SSL requests from this port. Most Web browsers use port 443 for SSL requests. (12204)
IP Address: x.x.x.x
Date: 11/30/2007 9:58:59 AM
Server: x.x.x
Source: proxy  

Is there a way to allow SSL to go through custom port 10000?

Thanks in advance.

A few products are like this - as I recall Sidewinder, requires port 10000 on SSL.

Download this vbs script - courtesy Jim Harrison and put in a range from 10000 - 10000

Use the ISA Tunnel Port Tool - not the ISATPRE

Read the guide though :) - works perfectly everytime.

OK, I ran the script on the ISA server as follows:

cscript isa_tpr.js /add port10000 10000

I restarted the firewall service and now the error message I'm getting is:

Network Access Message: The page cannot be displayed
 
Technical Information (for Support personnel)
Error Code: 502 Proxy Error. The host server is unreachable. (10065)
IP Address: X.X.X.X
Date: 12/3/2007 12:03:58 PM
Server: X.X.X
Source: proxy  

The server we're trying to access is the web server, where our site is hosted and it works. Port 10000 is to access the webstats.
Any ideas?

OK - the 10065 message is saying that there is no route to the destination but the traffic would be allowed otherwise.

Check your LAT table (configuration - networks - internal - properties -addressing etc)
Can you do a tracert to the site OK?

Hi Keith,

Yes, I can do a tracert to the site, both from a client computer as well as from the ISA server machine itself.
What exactly should I check in the LAT table?

Just as an aside, it should be 10.0.0.0 - 10.0.0.255 - the broadcast address is also internal and therefore needs to be included.

try running the BPZ - you need .net 1.1 installed to run this.

Keith,

I'll be gone for 2 weeks, therefore I won't be able to try it. I'm awarding you with the points because it seems that the site we were trying to access has been down, the ISA configuration for port 10000 was OK.
Thanks again.
