Thanks a lot Keith it works perfect.


Hey Keith,
my hapiness has gone, because after I did what you said on my ISA, I could do what I wanted with my PDF file, but when another computer on the network tried to login in the server it has no connectivity, neither the Internet neither the local network, the running computers had normal connection, I restarted the serveer the switch and then no one computer coud connect to the server.
Then I tried to disable the ISA rule that I created and all went to normallity. Any Idea what happened?

You DID leave in both rules didn't you - the first to allow the access to the url you wanted from your PC/server and the second rule allowing all access etc for the named Ad group?


I discovered my error. It was making the new rule in the first  position, then I tried to moving down just befor the SBS internet rule and all worked well.

Thanks a lot.
