When doing presentations on the Unified Access Gateway (UAG) 2010, I’m surprised by the number of people who know something about UAG but didn’t know that when you install UAG, TMG is automatically installed with it. There are a number of reasons for this:
- TMG acts as a firewall that protects the UAG server and the network behind it when you put the UAG server on the edge of the network
- UAG leverages several pieces of TMG functionality to work correct
- The history of UAG is with the former Whale SSL VPN. That product actually had ISA Server installed on it
Many times we take it for granted that UAG admins are aware of the networking and configuration model used by TMG. And while you should rarely if ever have to drop into the TMG console to configure the TMG components (the UAG wizards should do this for you), you can certainly benefit from a quick primer on TMG and how it works with UAG.
That’s where Jason Jones comes in. He’s written a great article on TMG Fundamentals for UAG Admins that would definitely be worth you time to read up on.
