Any Way to Redirect Outgoing HTTP Requests to Specific IP



  • 1. MSN Messenger Access
    I have and ISA 2004 server, however I noticed that even I have blocked MSN messenger access, some of the user still can log in to MSN. I have actual enable this policy from internal to external network without explicitly restricted individual to access MSN messenger. In other word , I completed forbid internal to external network using MSN messenger.
  • 2. ISA 2004 to PIX IPSec drops
    We're having problems where the IPSec tunnel to a PIX 501 is dropping frequently. The documentation says that the tunnel should be opening as a demand-dial that never disconnects because of idle time. The internet connection is not having any issues and PPTP connections INTO the ISA 2004 work without dropping. Anyone have ideas?
  • 3. What are my options here??
    What are my options with ISA 2004 or any other VPN solution for that matter? Scenario: Remote Site A: Private IP ( Remote Site B: Private IP ( Remote Site C: Private IP ( Main Office: Private IP ( The main office wants to create site-to-site VPN's between each of its remote sites to support a handful of servers (10 - 20). The intial problem I see is addressing/routing. If I am in the main office and I want to support a server that has an IP address of, there is no way to determine if that machine is on Remote Site A or Remote Site B. What are my options?
  • 4. Autodetec using DHCP and DNS (DHCP doesn't always work)
    Hi All I have configured our DHCP scopes in various offices to push the WPAD 252 entry to point a local user at their local ISA server. I also have a WPAD entry in DNS which points back to our Main office ISA servers. I have noticed that users in the remote offices seem to alternate between hitting their local ISA server and coming up to the main brnach ISA server. The only way I can see this happening is if the DHCP query fails intermittently for some reason. Has any one seen this before? Any fixes?

Any Way to Redirect Outgoing HTTP Requests to Specific IP

I want any outgoing HTTP or HTTPS request to a specific IP address to return
a page that I design myself.   Does ISA Server have any feature that would
let me set up that redirection and store the HTML result page on the ISA

don't see why not...  you could have IIS (or any http server for that 
matter) on ISA and bound to say an ip on an internal network card ON the ISA 
box and setup things that way...

create a rule that denies HTTP / HTTPS access to this IP and in the rule 
redirect the request to your website.

If I were going to set up a web server, I would put the web server on a
separate computer, but what I was hoping to do was to avoid the need to set
up a web site at all.     Since ISA Server has the ability to serve HTTP
requests for specific "special" objects like wpad.dat (used by clients for
autoconfiguration), we know that ISA has some basic hardened web server
functionality already embedded into the product.   What would have
oh-so-nice would have been the ability to have all HTTP(S) requests going to
specific target IPs be redirected to a result page or to an image and to be
able to place that page or image on the ISA Server and have it be serviced
by the ISA Server's native web server on the webproxy-enabled interfaces.

So basically I am looking for a *hardened* web server *for free*, running
under care of ISA, able to be full utilized by the redirect functionality of
ISA.   They would get brownie points on such a feature if the actual
location of the server could be dynamically adjusted by ISA to be on the
webproxy-enabled interface that contains the client that makes the request.
That saves me the hassle of network and firewall rules to interconnect the
different networks that are webproxy enabled to the hardened.   That's an
issue only for configurations where you have a lot of separate networks
connecting to the ISA Server (which we do).

I guess this is for the wishlist....

3.outgoing smtp via a specific IP

i have an exchange server behind an isa server. i have published the server 
for all the common protocols that are on exchange (smtp, pop3, rpc, rpc via 
http). All is working fine. 
the ISA server has several IP's assigned to the outside interface. this is 
due to several published web servers, and carrying over old ip's (prior to 
isa implementation). 
Anyway, my MX record points to one IP address (not the primary address of 
the ISA box), but when exchange sends emails out the isa server, it uses the 
default IP address. this is causing us problems sending emails to servers 
that are performing a reverse dns lookup on us. 

How do i get the email server to use the incoming IP address as the outgoing 
address too? hopefully i am explaining the situation clearly. 

thank you in advance.
