Test Button Considerations
If you read the first part of my two part series on ISA 2006 SP1, you might remember the discussion about the Test button and some limitations I found regarding the Test button. I recently pointed out blog post by Yuri Diogenes regarding the Test button showing that the connection worked from the ISA firewall to the published Web server, but external users were not able to connect to the published Web site.
While the Test button is a great boon to ISA firewall admins, is does work within some specific constraints. Dima Datsenko, a software development engineer on the ISA Server Sustained Engineering team provides a list of 7 issues that you should be aware of when working with the test button.
