I have some queries related to Microsoft ISA server
First of all I want to provide some info about my
network. In my network most of the systems are using
different flavor of MS windows and one computer (call
it server1) is providing internet access to all the
other computers (clients). There is no domain and all
the systems are in same workgroup. On server windows
2000 advance server is installed with ISA 2000 in
Now I want to divide the load of the server1 on two
different servers server2 and server3. I have
different ideas which I will test and the best one
will certainly be used in the future.
Now I need your help in practically implementing my
The Quires are as follows
1) First and most easy one (In my view) is that I want
to route the traffic of clients connecting to ISA
server on two different internet connection on the
basis of their private source IP i-e if I am using the
IP addressing scheme of 192.168.1.0 then first 128 pcs
would be route by server1 (On which ISA is installed)
towards server2 and rest of the ip would be routed
2) Second one is one advancement in the first idea
that if one server is idle at any time other may share
his load with the idle server.
3) I have noticed that even if one person is
downloading some files then the browsing of all the
other user is affected badly. I want to route the
files with extensions like EXE, ZIP, RAR , Audio
files, Video files and other related files which users
usually download towards server2 and rest of the
browsing is routed to server3 i-e download of one user
will not effect the speed of browsing but will only
effect the downloading speed of other user.
Last humble request is to be a little bit descriptive
in reply as I am totally newbie to Microsoft ISA
server 2000. I haven?t done any configuration in ISA
server 2000 before but have done similar type of work
using Cisco routers.
Thanks in Advance
