    Do you want to use the server as a firewall or just a proxy?
    You can not use any of the firewall services with only one nic.

    A domain environment is easier i think. What version of ISA do you have?
    LVL 12

    Accepted Solution

    if you have ISA 2004 it has a configuration wizard built in that will set it up to work with a single NIC. Then you just need to configure the access rules that you want and assign the proxy address to the users. Usually via group policy.
