    Hello, I have an SBS 2003 machine which acts as my
    Exchange/File and printserver.

    It's a faily new server so over the weekend I installed
    ISA and configured it as a proxy, it has two network cards
    but I disabled the second netcard and unchecked the box
    to 'enable packet filters' as I only want it to work as a
    proxy (I have an external hardware firewall). ISA is
    functioning fine and doing what I want it to.

    I also ran a Windows Update and downloaded the latest
    patches and installed SUS to update my clients.

    After this I rebooted my machine and around an hour later
    tried to print to a HP laserjet 4300tn but the printer
    didn't work. I uninstalled it and re-installed it a few
    times rebooting the server. I deleted the ports in 'server
    properties' and reinstalled it again but nothing!!

    I then installed it onto my desktop XP pro machine and it
    works fine! Which makes me think it's either ISA or the
    security patches!!

    Any Ideas anyone???

    My PC is currently the printserver.

    Thanks in advance.

    When you installed ISA with two NICs, you automatically
    enabled firewalling (filters and rules), you can't just
    disable an adapter and expect that ISA would be running in
    caching only mode.

    To properly fix your situation, you should uninstall ISA,
    remove the NIC and re-install ISA.

    A Q&D solution in <some> situations might be to simply
    disable packet filtering, but you will still have all
    sorts of routing rules still in effect which likely will
    cause you problems.
