Configuring ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition
The ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition Configuration Guide is a collection of documents that can help you deploy and configure Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004 Enterprise Edition arrays in a number of different scenarios. Each document is self-standing and does not require you to read any other document in the collection to complete the solution discussed in any document in the collection. This approach enables you to bypass extraneous information and target your attention on the chapter providing information that applies to your specific interests and requirements.
There are eight chapters in the ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition Configuration Guide. The first five chapters discuss installation scenarios. The last three chapters focus on common ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition deployment scenarios, including configuring an ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition virtual private network (VPN) server array, publishing Microsoft Exchange Server services, and creating a site-to-site VPN using ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition VPN gateways at a main and branch office.
An example network is used to illustrate the procedures in each of the ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition Configuration Guide documents. Detailed information about the example network is included, and you can mirror this information on your own test network. Mirroring the sample network will enable you to replicate configuration settings discussed in each document and allow you to become familiar with ISA Server 2004 Enterprise Edition enterprise array installation and configuration before deploying the software in your production environment.
