Running ISA 2006 behind a smoothwall linux firewall. Had to reboot both boxes this afternoon and now I can no longer browse the web. Email server is connecting okay, I can ping web addresses, skype works fine but as soon as I try and access a website I get an "Error Code 10061: Connection refused" back at me. The smoothwall firewall is connected to the web okay and can download updates. I'm stumped and want to go home :(

Interesting. I thought that too. I can however use an anonymous proxy tool called Hotspot Shield which allows me to access the web. Gone home for the night now (01:44 GMT - me tired) but will get back on the case tomorrow.

Also, just tested the VPN from home and can connect through that no problem but web browsing still not working.

Verify the Authentication Settings of the Smoothwall.

Be sure that the group wherein you included the ISA server to be is " allowed to use web proxy "-- you should see a Yes (filtered) or a Yes (unfiltered) but not a No.

Turns out it was the Smoothwall causing the issues. When I rebooted, it patched itself to the latest version. A reinstall and reconfigure soon got things going again. Thanks for everyone's comments.
