  • ISA Server Query

    Can anyone help on this?.

    Basically i am looking to deploy an ISA server 2006. Set up is pretty straightforwards from what i can remember. But due to the nature of our business. Internet SEO, we require an dynamic ip. As google tends to block the our ISP periodically. We have used external website proxies that prevent us from being blocked. Is this something that we could setup on an ISA server?.

    We are potentially looking to get a leased line in the future. Obviously they come with static IP's and would need to find a way round the google blocking our ip.

    Would an ISA server help in this instance?.

    With ISA you can use a upstream proxy if that is what you are looking for.
    But why would google block you?

      Re: ISA Server Query

      Basically,

      As an seo, we do a lot of cache searching and google reports/queries, that usually end up with google blocking our IP, hence the dynamic IP from our ISP. Am basically looking at getting a leased line for our office, but as we would have the same problem with google. Am hoping that desploying an ISA server 2006 would allow us to use some sort of proxy that would prevent us from getting blocked.

      Would an upstream proxy with ISA help prevent this and is it a pain to setup?.

      Any help would be apprieciated.

        An upstream proxy is quite easy to setup.
        However personally I would contact Google to see what they can do for that blocking.
        you are properly getting this? http://www.google.com/sorry/misc/?co...www.google.com

          Yes thats the message we get.

          Would contacting google and asking them not to block our Static IP work?.


          Cheers

              An upstream server is nothing else then an other proxy server which would be used to contact the internet. ISA would be a "backend" proxy.

              I would give it a shot contacting google. you have no as answer but you might get a yes

                Re: ISA Server Query

                So basically, would i need two servers. The ISA as the backend and the another server as the front end?. Would they both need ISA installed?.

                Are there any setup docs for this?.

                Cheers

                  Re: ISA Server Query

                  Well first of all you don't need a upstream proxy if you don't want to.
                  I'd might misunderstand you. I thought you already used a proxy server and wanted to let ISA use that proxy

                    Basically, I am thinking of deploying an ISA server on our network to act as a firewall and vpn server. We are thinking of getting a leased line as well. Problem being we do a number of cached searches and reports that hit google and after a while they block our isp ip.

                    Would an ISA server be any help in preventing this from happening?. Or is there anyway we could prvent our ip from being blocked by using isa?.

                      Re: ISA Server Query

                      Nope.
                      ISA (and any other firewall) will do all the queries through his IP. And that IP is getting blocked by google.
                      Therefore I don't see any other way then contacting google for this.
