Using Microsoft ISA Server 2006, how does one monitor ALL inbound and outbound traffic that is flowing through a specific (Windows 2003) application server? Currently, when we view traffic with the ISA monitoring tool, we see only limited traffic on this application server. There should be lots of traffic between this application server and other servers including the Exchange server. I am seeing no traffic between the application servers and; very limited traffic going to the Exchange Server. We need to see exactly what ports are being used on this application server. Thank you

Have you tried looking at session states?

Isa console reporting, logging tab, and then configure the appropriate rule.

Hello simonlimon.

No I am not familiar with session states.

I am new to ISA and, can't seem to find "Isa console reporting". We have ISA Server 2006 - can you step me thru this please?

Thank you!

Open the "ISA console" Look for reporting or logs and reports and find the logging tab..

Configure the rule to filter just the traffic from client IP of the client and press start query.

We have already attempted this as follows:

Microsoft ISA Server --> ISA Server Management --> Arrays --> p8 staging --> Monitoring --> Logging

--> Edit Filter --> Filter by Client IP --> Equals --> Value (ip address of the application server) --> Add to

List  --> Start Query

It then indicates "Fetching results..." but, it does does display the logging results
