Hi all, I have some queries related to Microsoft ISA server 2000. 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 integrated mode. 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 ideas. 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 then first 128 pcs would be route by server1 (On which ISA is installed) towards server2 and rest of the ip would be routed towards server3. 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 Irfan Azher Email: Web:
