Connection problems to my TMG boxes.

Hi,

I recently installed TMG on 2 servers (Array) running server 2008 R2. I was able to connect to them fine from anywhere but since running the security wizard on #1 and then copying that xml file to #2 I have been unable to connect to them from most machine. When I say most Im able to RDP and ping both machine from my laptop, however no one else can and not even the 2 servers can talk to each other.

I have rolled the security profiles back to the orginals and played with the TMG rules and policies with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also the Windows Firewall on both TMG boxes is turned off.

Ok so I have narrowed it down to being TMG itself that is causing the block. I uninstalled it from one of my TMG servers and can now access it.

My problem is I don't know what to change in TMG to allow ping and RDP to these servers as I have it installed and working fine in my lab.

Problem solved.

When you install TMG a message that you sometimes can easliy just click past will tell you that yur IP has been added to remote manage the TMG server, all others will be blocked. To edit this you need to go into your irewall Policy rules, go to the Task section on the right and edit your System Policy to allow other IP's, subnets or whatever you want.
