Do you have the latest SP and updates for ISA 2004 installed ?

This hotfix should fix it for you, but applying updates it very important:

Dear
  On ISA Server Ping the default gate of  WAN NIC  is it responding properly.
  Ping the DNS on  WAN NIC  is it responding properly
  run cmd nslookup www.google.com is it answering
  check your firewall service status is it started.

provide the output please for an ipconfig /all from the ISA server.
Provide the same output from a client work station that is demonstrating the issues.

Assuming you have two NIC cards in your ISA, confirm that your Windows host for your ISA configuration follows the best practice guidance in my article on the subject which can be found here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Windows_Security/A_1477-Configuring-ISA-2004-2006-Forefront-Threat-Management-Gateway-for-basic-networking-and-DNS-settings.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+30+alabast+keith

Please give some detail around the issue you are experiencing as your question is confusing. Does the ISA work correctly for everyone that is on the main site but is just not working for the remote site?

When you ran the ISA2004 best practice analyser, what results did you see? Have you resolved any of the problems highlighted?

    Background: The gateway or proxy server lost connection to the web server
    Server: isa.domainname.com
    Source : Remote server

It will be if you can answer my questions please? It sounds like a DNS issue which is why I want the ipconfig /all outputs I have requested.

Dear keith

internet connection is via juniper firewall, the given below ip is for our ISA server, i think its not an DNS issue because Exchange server Email are working fine(internally as well externally).


 ip address : 192.168.1.13
 subnet mask : 255.255.255.0
 default gateway : 192.168.1.3

 preferred DNS : 192.168.1.10
 alternate DNS : 192.168.1.17

Running the best practice analyser or monitoring the realtime log and test options as we suggested would have picked that up for you days ago but the important part is getting the question closed.
