Have to be a little careful there..... I deliberately worded my comment carefully because the scenario is not supported (and bearing in mind the ridiculously little info in the question). However, it can certainly be done and ISA will use both links but it is not ISA that carries out the setup activity - it is the host OS and the routing tables (static routes0 that are assigned. ISA is not a router but Windows is, so if two nics were installed - one for each wan connection then (only at layer 3) the OS could use both links dependant on destination IP addresses. This cannot be done though on a protocol basis.

As Keith already pointed out this cant be done via ISA.

You need to look into a dual wan router option to sit infront of the ISA server.
