Create Web Access Rule

From Part 7: Create DNS Lookup Rule, you have create an access rule to allow DNS look up from the internal network to the external DNS addresses. But you do not have any web access rule for users. So now, I will show how to create an access rule on ISA Server 2006 to allow HTTP and HTTPS protocols for a user to access the Internet.

Step-by-step

  1. On ISA Server Management, open Firewall Policy by expand Arrays -> BKKISA001 -> Firewall Policy (BKKISA001).
    Open Firewall Policy
  2. On Firewall Policy, select Tasks and click on Create Access Rule.
    Create Access Rule
  3. On Welcome to the New Access Rule Wizard, type a name for the access rule. On this example, I type “Allow HTTP, HTTPS for Linglom” and click Next.
    Welcome to the New Access Rule Wizard
  4. On Rule Action, select Allow and click Next.
    Set Action for Rule
  5. On Protocols, you have to choose which protocols will be applied to this rule.
    • Select Selected protocols and click Add.
      Add Protocols to Rule
    • On Add Protocols, expand Common Protocols and double-click on HTTP and HTTPS. Then, click Close and click Next to continue.

      Add Internal Network as Source to Rule
  7. On Access Rule Destinations, do the same as the previous step but select External network as a destination.
    Add External Network as Destination to Rule
  8. On User Sets, you have to select which users and groups are applied to this access rule. On this example, I want this rule apply to only a domain user account – linglom.
    • Remove All Users by click on Remove and add a new User Sets by click Add.
      Remove All Users
    • On Add Users, you see existing user sets available. There is no user set that I want so I will create a new one. Click New.

      New User Set Wizard
    • On Users, click Add -> Windows users and groups.
