Apple iPad behind ISA 2004

This is a new one on me.  I have an wireless access point servicing three iPads, and a Windows SBS 2003 server running ISA 2004.  I have configured the iPads with the proxy server settings using domain accounts and passwords for authentication.  However, though the iPads can reach the Internet, they have problems accessing secure sites - and this affects accessing the user's mail from the Exchange server as well as the App Store - among many others.  I'm hoping someone can help me understand the best solution for providing these iPads with unfettered access from behind the ISA 2004.

in order to do much more that browse the web typically requires the ISA client, which isn't going to work on an IPad.  I've searched and can find no work arounds for this
My recommendation, if the client is in good enough shape to implement 3 IPads, ditch ISA and go with a hardware Firewall that provides good UTM services and problem is solved.  One of my customers with SBS 2003 has an IPad and we have a Calyptix Access Enforcer Firewall with UTM and the IPad is fully functional

Created a rule in ISA to allow all traffic to the iPAD's IP Address, which I configured manually.  Works perfectly.
