Cannot telnet to a server from the ISA 2006 server

Hi, i need to confirm that i can telnet to an external
server that sits behind an externla firewall.  We have a simple AD directory on one vlan using ISA 2006 as the proxy/ firewall that sits on our LAN. When from my client pc i run the telnet command to the external server it goes though our ISA server and then times out after hitting the router, we expect this because my client IP address has not been permitted access to teh external firewall however, when i log onto the ISA firewall who's IP address has been allowed through the external firewall it fails to connect using telnet. In fact, it can't even telnet to the router.

How do i enable telnet on the ISA? I'm confused because my client uses telnet and passes the ISA so why can't the ISA itself use telnet? Any help appreciated.

Do you have an access rule from localhost to external allowing telnet protocol for all users ?

Hi, no I do not, not from local host. Do you have a rough idea on how to create that?

It is as same as creating access policies on ISA server,,, just select "localhost" instead of internal in the from field

Select localhost on the from field

Hi mate,

I puit the rule in but get the same failure. Watched the utube vid to ensure was done corretly. What i'm thinking is that when i run up a command prompt and run teh telnet command is it actually using the ISA software to get out?

When i check the ISA logs it states "denied connection - reason - unidentified IP traffic (UDP:23). And that it is hitting our last default rule but doesn't make any sense because I have the allow telnet (any port) rule as number 1 in the list from local host to anywhere?
