A temporary 'out the door' policy in ISA 2004
Okay so you wanna do a temporary "anything out the door in ISA 2004"? Just so you can see if something works, or temporarily allow something out and you'll figure it out later?
No prob....just go to the Firewall Policy in the ISA console and then the SBS Internet access rule and add "All Users" in addition to the "SBS Internet Users" and click okay and then "Apply" at the top.... now anything inside will go outside.....
To undo it just take out all users and you are back to the normal SBS default rule set/setup.
Two follow ups...
ONE - this is TEMPORARY and I'll wack you upside the head with my 2x4 if you leave it permanently...now with the ISA monitoring ...man there is NO NEED for you to leave this like this... as you can tell what is being blocked.....
TWO - Obiwan had a great idea to build another rule set and leave it disabled and just 'enable' it when you needed to rather than messing with [and possibly screwing up] an existing rule.
