    Modem unreliable hang up.


    by trevorwhite ·

    I Have an Windows 2K server installation which unfortunately has to rely on a dialup connection for mail and internet access. The modem is configured to drop its connection to the ISP after 1 min (but have tried up to 10mins) of idle time. About 30% of the time it doesn’t drop its connection because there is some sort of traffic even though all email is collected or there are no browser sessions active.

    How do I track down the source of the traffic and how do I prevent it from holding the modem connection up. I suspect the answer lies with the ISA server and logs but don’t really know where to start.

    Any help or pointer to white paper, FAQ etc would be gratefully rx’d.

      In reply to Modem unreliable hang up.

      In the isa server management, server and arrays , sessions, you can see what session is keeping the connection open.
      Also if you open ISA server performance monitor, and check the graphs (active sessions , etc you can see again if there are still open connections )

      check out on how to enable logging.

      last but not least, are you sure you configured the isa server properly that except the email , no other protocols and stuff may access the internet (in isa server management, servers and arrays, access policy, protocols rules).
