ISA Server

By Sameh Fouad ·
I have a situation, I adminster a Windows domain, a Win. 2003 Domain controller that hosts a site, a Win. 2000 member server (works as a file server that has sensitive data on it), if I want to use ISA, on which server should I install it?

Thanks and best regards

Definitely on Windows2003. And in this case, for better security you can install windows firewall client on all workstations.

Make sure the DC is properly sized to allow for the additional memory and processor strain that ISA will place on it.

Actually, I agree with CG, but you only gave us the choice of 2 servers, one of which is known to have confidential files.

My real choice is the same as CG's. Get another server in the perimeter.

Can you tell me why ISA is better installed on the Domain Controller?

neither server.

ISA 2000/2004 is best as a stand alone box that is the perimeter firewall and proxy for the network e.g. it's the last link before the internet.
