There are a lot of new goodies included in the Beta 3 version of the upcoming TMG firewall and we’ll cover them in detail here at ISAserver.org in the coming months. However, if you want a quick look at what we think are the best and the brightest new features and capabilities included in the beta 3, then make sure you subscribe to our newsletter. I’ll cover these in the next edition which should be released sometime next week.

One of the most important new features is the reintroduction of Web Filtering, a feature that was included in previous betas, but removed during beta 2, which scared a lot of TMG firewall fan into thinking that maybe these feature wouldn’t return.
No worries! URL filtering is back and it’s great. We’ll talk more about this feature in the future, but if you’re already playing with this feature, you might want to know how to “opt out” users from this feature. After all, as the TMG firewall admin, you certainly don’t want to be limited by URL filtering 🙂
Check out this article by Gershon Levitz to see how you can exclude users from URL filtering.
