Web Publishing in ISA Server 2006

I would like to write about web publishing with different port.  By default, Website / IIS 6.0 is set in port 80. I now change to different port which is port 9600. I have to make sure the port is unused. you can view the port using netstat command.

Of course, in windows server 2003 environment, you need to install Internet Information Service (IIS) to publish website, or you can use apache. But, I like to use IIS.

after I installed the IIS 6.0, I need to change the port from 80 to 9600. (don’t ask me why 9600).hehehe..

now, I go to ISA Manangement Console. Create a new website publishing on Firewall Policy.

On the publishing type, choose a “single website or load balancer. click Next.

On a Server Connection Security, select the radio button like below (figure 3)

On the Internal Publishing Detail, type the internal name site. for example, web-server. tick the box to use a computer name / ip address. for example, my web server is

just click Next for next step.

On the Public Name Details, type the public domain. let’s say www.justexample.info (see figure 4).

the next configuration is the Web Listener. I need to create a web listener for this web publishing.

it’s simply straightforward, click “New” on select web listener.

On Client Connection security, just choose Do not require SSL secure connection.

Then, the  web listener should like on Internal and External network.

at the authentication setting, choose no authentication. Then proceed with next and finish.

in the Authentication Delegation, leave it as default and click Next.

At the user sets, just click Next and then Finish.

You have to alter the port number to redirect to the web server. otherwise, it will still listen to port 80. On the properties of the rule that you have created just now, go to the bridging tab and at the non-SSL port, change from 80 to 9600.

Lastly, click Apply to save the configuration.
