A few people have been writing to me about getting the RTM version of the 2006 ISA firewall. They’ve heard rumors that ISA 2006 has gone RTM but can’t find it anywhere. It’s not even available on the MSDN site, which seems like a departure from normal behavior after a product RTMs.
So how do you get the RTM? Download the trial version! The trial version of the 2006 ISA firewall will work for a 180 days. That’s right! A full SIX months. I think that you’ll be impressed enough after the first month to buy the product. I’ve been running beta versions here for quite some time and they’re rock solid. Here’s one product that you won’t need to wait for Service Pack 1 before deploying!
