ISA Client for linux?


I'm working at a Hospital where the network administrators are M$ addicts. If the server doesn't crash at least once a day, they are not happy. So they implemented an ISA server so people logged into the isa server could access internet.

Is there a ISA Client available for linux?

Better ever then never

I'm in same situation ... but on SUSE 9.2 with samba it can be done by entering in conrtol panel in samba client user name, pass, and workgroup and activate wins client and netbios in samba server ... then in YASt control do same thing for samba client and server ... also bind in server host list ip of server with it's netbios name and enter your ip if fixed. That way you can do same thing as windows users: surf, messengers etc ...

Thanks for replaying. It's good to know it's possible to do it... however, You're talking about SuSE stuff. How about plain standard (or quasi standard) linux? There's nothing available? Simple old-fashioned-console applications?

Sry for not posting that stuff but I'm to linux and do everything from gui ... but i think there is samba config file that can be edited because suse control panel and yast are just gui editors for those config files.

How is it that americans say? I looked in the beast's mouth... but found nothing.

I first checked with the oracle (google) for 'samba "isa server"'.... and the first pages where in german.... in other words, nothing.

Then I went to samba.org, wrote isa in the search tool.... and nothing. I guess samba is not the right way to go. :'(

samba is a service that shares files and printers for windows networks. it also support domain logons. u are right, it is not the software that u want.
if u want to search softwares visit:
www.freshmeat.net
www.sourceforge.net
and search about ISA, i hope u will find it.

good luck.

actually u have 2 options. first one will certainly work.
1-as i remember ISA can be configured to make "secure nat". it can allow you trou NAT. so u wont need any proxy client software.
2- u can configure your applications to use proxy server. i think u wont have any trouble with sofwares that access internet via http ftp https ports. but i dont know if it is possible for other softwares such as mail client softwares. keep searching softwares

btw, tell your boss that M$ I$A is bull sh.tt. there is a great proxy server called squid but i cannot understand why the ppl prefer I$A.

good luck.

Well..... I think that the "M$ stuff is BS!!!" part of your explenation has already been put on the table, so to speak. ... but as I told you in the beginning: They're just M$ junkies.

I'll just have to "deal" with it. I'm able to browse If I set up the browsers to use the http proxy port without a problem, however, IM is kind of problematic... and no xMule.... at least, yet.

I appreciate your interest anyway. Thanks.

Now... thinking a little deeper. Are there projects going on to achieve ISA server logging? I mean, acording to what I've heard from my coworkers, all they have to do to gain access to the internet is log into the ISA server using its client application. The ISA server right now is not filtering any traffic at all (once you're logged in). Not only web, but ANY traffic through ANY port (according to them). What information do you have available in that direction? I'd like to collaborate on that in order to bring M$ on its knees.... ok, ok.... I know, wishful thinking... but I gotta dream big, right?

OK ... here is "non gui windows like" way to set samba
find folder:
/etc/samba
edit global part of smb.conf to look like:

# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SUSE
# Date: 2004-10-05
[global]
workgroup = WORKGRUOP
printcap cache time = 750
cups options = raw
printer admin = @ntadmin, root, administrator
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
map to guest = Bad User
include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf
logon path = \\%L\profiles\.msprofile
logon home = \\%L\%U\.9xprofile
logon drive = P:
ldap idmap suffix = ou=Idmap
ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers
ldap suffix = dc=example,dc=com
wins server = 192.168.0.10
restrict anonymous = no
domain master = no
preferred master = no
max protocol = NT
ldap ssl = No
server signing = Auto
security = domain
encrypt passwords = yes

then ...
find /etc/sysconfig
edit file proxy to look like:

## Path: Network/Proxy
## Description:
## Type: yesno
## Default: no
## Config: kde,profiles
#
# Enable a generation of the proxy settings to the profile.
# This setting allows to turn the proxy on and off while
# preserving the particular proxy setup.
#
PROXY_ENABLED="yes"

## Type: string
## Default: ""
#
# Some programs (e.g. lynx, arena and wget) support proxies, if set in
# the environment. SuSEconfig can add these environment variables to
# /etc/SuSEconfig/* (sourced by /etc/profile etc.) -
# See http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/1998/01/lynx_proxy.html for more details.
# Example: HTTP_PROXY="http://proxy.provider.de:3128/"
HTTP_PROXY="http://192.168.0.10:8080/"

## Type: string
## Default: ""
#
# Example: FTP_PROXY="http://proxy.provider.de:3128/"
#
FTP_PROXY="http://192.168.0.10:8080/"

## Type: string
## Default: ""
#
# Example: GOPHER_PROXY="http://proxy.provider.de:3128/"
#
GOPHER_PROXY=""

## Type: string(localhost)
## Default: localhost
#
# Example: NO_PROXY="www.me.de, do.main, localhost"
#
NO_PROXY="localhost, 192.168.0.10"

then ...
in /etc/sysconfig/network
find file routes and edit to look like:

default 192.168.0.10 - -

and thats all I can find ... i hope it will help
