Installing ISA 2004 on Server 2k3 R2 SE

Posted on 2008-06-16
Last Modified: 2010-04-11
Ok I have Win2k3 R2 with Exchange 2k3 installed. Recently installed a BES server for RIM devices. All is installed and working fine... so far.
The problem I have is with the documentation. It's talking about configuring ISA 2004 to allow traffic from and to the Blackberry server. Do I need to install ISA 2004 as a add-on to Server 2k3? Is there any additional licensing I need to purchase. All I can seem to find is service pack for the ISA

do you have and use an isa server?
Did you test the srp connections on the Blackberry?  If the BES can contact the SRP this should be ok.

I have never heard of it untilI installed BES and began configuring. Is there a place to download on MS site?

It's not necessary to install isa2004.

did you try to test the network connections of your BES server (start => blackberry enterprise server => blackberry server configuration).
select tab "Blackberry server" and click on "validate srp key and id"
Then select tab "blackberry router" and click on "test network connection"

If this is all successful it should be ok.

Ok, Blackberry server" and click on "validate srp key and id" was okay and had validated at time of setup. However when I tested the BB router it gave me a connection timeout error (10060)

open port 3101 on your firewall.  This is documented in the installation guide page 14. (checklist network environment settings)
