I have a website, OWA and Server-Activesync behind an ISA2006.
The Exchange is a single server (no front end)

I did a test on this ISA2006 with Nessus and one issue is that the server uses SSL 2.0, the recommendation is that i disable 2.0 and uses SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0.

Can anyone explain this to me in human language, and tell me if it's possible on ISA2006.
Can i use SSL 3.0 insted of 2.0 ??

ISA will support all versions of SSL out of the box and they are all secure.

I assume that was some sort of attempt by yourself at sarcasm?

You state you have performed a test with Nessus although you give no details of what the test was nor what caused/provided the recommendation so I am unsure what you would like me to respond to for that aspect.
Again, it is difficult to describe anything at all with out some background detail to give a context.
You also ask if you can use SSL3.0 instead of SSL2.0? ISA does not dictate the SSL version. On the assumption you are bridging SSL through the publishing rules then ISA will make an SSL call and the host will dictate the version in its response - and ISA will use it.

Your actual question simply asks if SSL 2.0 is unsecure on ISA2006 - no, it is not.
If that is not actually the question that you wanted to ask then please feel free to provide some detailed information that will allow us to respond accordingly or just state that this is not the question you want answering, and fire away with what you really want to ask.
