    I have SBS 2003 Prem. Ed. Currently running IIS. While
    installing ISA 2000 I was prompted that I would need to
    either remove IIS or change the port 80 and 8080 to some
    other values. Fine, however after ISA was installed I
    went to Add/Remove Programs -> Windows Components but a
    selection for IIS (to remove it) was not there. And I was
    unable to find where I could change the port values. I
    was unable to access the internet/e-mail from clients so I
    uninstalled ISA 2000 and reran Internet/E-mail Config.
    Wiz. and was able to get internet and e-mail.

    My questions:

    1)How can I properly setup ISA 2000. Is there a link with
    step-by-step instructions.

    2) What is better running IIS with ISA or uninstalling IIS
    (how to uninstall IIS)

    3) Or keeping IIS and changing the port values, if so are
    there any guidelines for value assignments (ie 80 to 81
    and 8080 to 9999)

  2. Kim,

    You really don't want to uninstall IIS in SBS 2003 - SharePoint, Exchange,
    and the SBS administrative tools all rely on IIS for proper functionality.
    Rather than go through the steps to manually configure IIS and ISA, I would
    suggest running the CEICW. You will find this in the SBS Server Management
    console under the ToDo List as "Connect to the Internet". The wizard will
    configure IIS, ISA, and Exchange to work together on your server.

  3. On the Premium Technologies CD, there is a file called
    "premiuminstallsteps.htm" that contains step by step instructions for
    installing and configuring ISA 2000.
    Post back if you have any additional questions after reviewing that
    document, and we'd be glad to help!

    After I installed ISA 2000, I did run the CEICW
    succesfully, and I was able to get out to the internet in
    the server, however I could send/recieve e-mail and did
    not have internet access from any of the client PCs (All
    XP Pro). I believe that this was due to a port conflict
    (Yes/No?). At the time I tried to change the port values
    (80 and 8080)on IIS to some other values but could not
    find where to do this. With only an hour before for the
    start of Business I uninstalled ISA 2000 and reran CEICW.
    Which got me back to my starting point.

    Is it correct to assume that I need to change the port
    values with respect to IIS? If so, where can I do this
