Telnet to ISA Server

I have a simple question and expect a simple answer -

I have bitdefender installed on a internal server (192.168.x.x) and from this server i cannot telnet on port 7072 to the ISA Server (172.16.x.x). I'm even failing if i do a telnet from the ISA server to the Bitdefender Server.

Please help.

I presume you are able to telnet from both servers to a third server, say exchange port 25?

When you telnet, what errors do you get?

Sorry, not so simple. ;)

The list of ports used by bitdefender are here:

7072 isn't listed.  Have you tried telnetting to Bitdefenders other ports?

I think you should make sure which port you need to telnet.
Additionally, try to publish a new server from the ISA machine and specify the port and machine you need to access and don't forget to open the port on that machine to allow access.

I'm able to telnet to exchange from ISA and i'm also able to telnet to the bitdefender server on port 80.
The bitfdefender support guy told me that the bitdefender agent communicates with the bitdefender server on port 7072.

When i telnet i get this error - Could not open connection to the host on port 7072.
Without wishing to cause consternation within BitDefender, it sounds like the support guy has got it wrong:

a: because you cannot telnet to it, despite proving that telnet does work to other servers.
b: because BitDefender themselves do not list this port as being used by their product.

I would ask them again to confirm what the port is.

Have you actually got an access rule allowing tcp port 7072 from internal to localhost and/or vice versa?

I'll assume you have the ISA2006 SP1 installed.

As Keith mentioned, I got an access rule allowing tcp port 7072 from internal to local host and vice versa. Then did few tests and finally got it working.

Thanks all for your comments.
