ALL messengers are not working

Postby waqas373 » Sat Mar 27, 2004 2:15 pm

salam to all

i ve facing the problems on my network i ve running isa server on windows 2000 and clients on redhat linux, lindows and windows all clients do the surfing and all clients except lindows and RH clients conect to the different messengers like yahoo hotmail and aol
first i think that is isa server problem but in isa i define the rules for messenger and allow all type of messengers but it also doest work
i m using gaim amsn yahoo for linux and aol messengers but the results are same :?:
once upon a time i ve faced the similar problem but at that time i solve the problem of this by defining the default gateway but this trick also doest work

thanks in advance

Asalaam-u-Alikum!

I think it is the problem of ISA Firewall, try closing the firewall and then try to use messenger. Post the result.

Assalm-o-Alikum
I use a desi cable net and the guys at the cable office use ISA server 200 Enterprise Edition So Natrually when there was complains about Linux based messenegers not working they call upon me to figure this out.

And i went through entire "MICROSOFT INTERNET SECURITY AND ACCELARATION SERVER 2000 Mannual" (Short for ISA mannual Big name actually sucks).

In the End i figured out that ISA treats the nodes witout the firewall clients such as linux hosts as SECURE NAT CLIENT and only provides access to HTTP services to these nodes and all the rules and proxy stuff are applied on the Firewall clients.

Now i have heard a rumor and i dont know whether it is true that there is a service for linux that emulates ISA firewall client and fools the ISA server that this machine is a FIREWALL client and Not a SECURE NAT.

If any one knows of such a script or program plz tell me I will be eternally thankful.
