Stefaan Pouseele posted a great blog entry this week on how to configure the Enterprise CA to use a specific port that can be used to make a request to an online Enterprise CA without having to create an “All Open” rule between the ISA Firewall and the CA. Stefaan points out that there are basically four steps:
- On the CA, configure the RPC application or DCOM endpoint to use a custom TCP protocol port as a static port.
- On the ISA, turn off the “Enable strict RPC compliance” setting on the RPC access rule.
- On the ISA, create the custom protocol for outbound use.
- On the ISA, create an access rule to allow the custom protocol between the required source and destination.
