Macintosh IE 5.0/ISA Proxy Server

By mogilner ·
I work for a company who is in the early stages of installing Microsoft ISA Proxy Server. The ISA Proxy Server of course works wonderfully with the Microsoft Windows NT/2000 machines. We also have a small number of Macintosh Computers that need to go through the ISA Proxy.

The problem that occurs is that when the Macintoshes are connected to network drives AND trying to browse the internet with IE 5.0 for the Macintosh the LAN account locks up. This of course means the person no longer has access to their network drive nor the internet through the ISA Proxy Server. This behavior happens within about 30 - 45 minutes and will continue to lock up every half hour.

The interesting thing is that this behavior does NOT seem to happen with the Netscape Browser 4.0.8 or Netscape 6.1. Our company very much wants to stick with IE.

I am wondering if any of you had any experience with Macintoshes and the ISA Proxy. Our server group is stumped and they say Microsoft is stumped to.

Your network drives should have nothing to do with your proxy server. You should have a separate proxy server setup for Internet access. Also, try clearing the cache on the server. I've seen a Novell proxy server crash because the cache was too full. You may need to upgrade to MacOS 9 or X if you haven't already done so.

We have quite a similar setup here. I have a hunch it could be the Mac OS compatibility issue here. However, I don't really have an answer but try this site for more info: http://www.macwindows.com/

Go to Mac OS and other Platform link and see if this helps. Good luck.
