Publish Sharepoint behind SBS2000

Despite all the security issues with this configuration, I need help making this work. I have SBS2000/ISA/Exchange/CompanyWeb on a server connected to our T-1 Router. I recently implemented another server, W2K3/Sharepoint services as a member server in the domain. I would like to publish Sharepoint on the W2K3 box through the SBS/ISA box. I have followed countless documents on getting ISA2000 to publish, but I haven't had any luck. The publically-resolved web addresses I'd like to use are www.company.com and beta.company.com, both resolve to the external interface on the SBS2000 box. Here's what I've done: -Created a destination set using the FQDN of beta.company.com -Used a web publishing rule for beta.company.com redirecting to internal IP 10.0.0.6 -ISA server configured for web listener on external interface for Integrated authentication only (I have tried Basic and Basic/Integrated with same results). I've done a lot more than that to make this work, but that's some of the more important steps. Also, it's important to note that it's apparant that ISA is simply ignoring all the configuration changes. The reason I say that is in desparation I created a web redirect in IIS on the SBS box and it behaves differently when trying to access it remotely: with the IIS redirect, the remote browsing simply times out. Without the IIS redirect, I get error 404. I know sharepoint is working because it behaves normally when accessed from the LAN on one of the workstations OR the SBS box. *I posted this question in both microsoft.public.backoffice.smallbiz2000,microsoft.public.isa.publishing and have yet to recieve a response. I suspect that SBS2000 won't forward HTTP requests off of it by design, but I can't find any information to substatiate that conclusion.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SPS uses a website, Have you upgraded the IIS on the 2000 server? SPS expects to be a virtual directory/site and IIS 5.0 had issues. Have you tried using IIS 6.0 on the W2k3 server? If that works then point to that web server throught the ISA box.
Good luck

    Yes, the W2K3 server has IIS 6.0 installed. I don't have a problem using SPS on the LAN. It's just getting through the ISA server on the W2K server box (SBS2000) into it which is making things tough. I did try installing SPS onto the W2K box but as expected, SPS isn't allowed to be installed on SBS2000. I'm unsure if I could/should install IIS 6.0 on the SBS2000 box, but I don't think it should make any difference in getting SPS to work, but I could try it as a last-ditch effort.

    Update: I decided not to install IIS 6 on the SBS server. The problems that could cause on a production server I just don't want to get embroiled in. It's a shame that we can't use SBS, but fortunately it's not what we purchased the server for. Hopefully I can make a Linux box to do the job the ISA server is doing and easily redirect host headers to the server I want to.
