TMG - Publish a Web Server

Hi guys,

I have Solarwinds monitoring internally and we would like to publish the website of it, out to the Internet.

We have set up logins, so users can enter their details into the login form that Solarwinds presents
Solarwinds Login Page
I have tried to publish this as a Web Publishing rule, using SSL.

When I set up the Web Listener, I've set the usual details for the certificate which I'm confident is working.

However, when the page is not published via TMG, the login page pops up, I type in my details and all is OK.

When it is published, as soon as I goto the site, it gives me a windows login box pop up requesting login details, before I get to the Solarwinds login form.

I've played around with HTTP authentication, using Integrated I get the prompt.

Using Basic, I dont get a prompt but I get an error:
Error Code: 403 Forbidden. The server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator. (12202)

Open in new window


Any ideas?

You would use "no authentication" in the web listerner authentication. and relay on the web server to authenticate users.

Great thanks.

I've adjusted my web listener to No Authentication.

What do you mean by 'relay on the web server to authenticated users' ?

It means the ISA uses no authentication,...but allows the user to authenticate to the target web server directly.

As opposed to:

The ISA uses no authentication,...and does not allow the user to authenticate to the target web server directly.

Ok,

Having done what you said.

Removed and re-added my web site publishing rule, it's all now working.

Thanks for your help!
