Hello Experts.

We are running ISA 2004, and cannot get to the website http://inpix.ca if the ISA client is running, or if the settings are in the browser.  There is no problem getting to the website going directly through the gateway.  In IE it gives a timeout error, and the following is what I see in the logs:

2011-02-11      13:48:13      w3proxy      ISA      -      www.inpix.ca      209.44.116.101      80      21031      910      4482      http      TCP      GET      http://www.inpix.ca/index.php/      -      Inet      10060      0x6      URL Allow List      Req ID: 08e56d1a       Internal      External      0x40      Failed

When I run a logging query, I do not even see the connection attempt.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

do you mean by pinging it?  If so, When I ping from the ISA server I see the IP but get host unreachable

Actually I meant nslookup, but ping can resolve names.


please compare results ( nslookup from ISA  and nslookup from client machine)
are the two returned IPs identical ? If so then the problem is not in name resolving.

the idea behind that is wen you using webproxy, then the name will be resolved on the ISA server not on the client machine, but using default gateway ( secure nat), the name will be resolved using client machine.

I ran a DNSreport on inpix.ca, and the A record 209.44.116.101 is the same as one of their NS records...is that normal?

same thing in firefox:

    * Error Code 10060: Connection timeout
    * Background: The gateway could not receive a timely response from the website you are trying to access. This might indicate that the network is congested, or that the website is experiencing technical difficulties.
    * Date: 2/11/2011 3:32:44 PM

Yes - you would expect an A record to match an NS record.

Post the output of an ipconfig /all from the ISA box.

Config looks fine so no issue there.
If you open a web browser on ISA itself and access the same site - same result? You were asked this earlier but I didn't see a response back.
If it works OK like this - do you also have the web proxy settings applied on the ISA web browser? If not, put them in and retest - same result?

Not surprisingly, the problem ended up being that the External IP of the ISA server was being blocked by the site's firewall.  Should have been an easy thing to discover, but it took them 3 weeks to deal with it.

Thanks for all of your input

Turned out that there was no internal problem that needed solving.
