All incoming Web requests to ISA Server should be received by a Web listener. Multiple Web-publishing rules can use a single Web listener. When you configure a Web listener, you specify the network that corresponds to the adapter on which ISA Server will listen for incoming Windows SharePoint Services requests. For example, if you want to allow access to the SharePoint site from the Internet (External network), you should select the External network for the Web listener. The listener can listen on all IP addresses associated with a network, or on specific IP addresses. You also configure the port number that will listen for requests on the selected network IP addresses.
