The ISA computer has three network adapters. The adapter details are given below: 

Local Area Connection 3: ? 
10.255.2555.255 ? 

Local Area Connection 4  ?, ? ?, ? ?, ? 

Local Area Connection 5 ?, ? 
10.255.2555.255 ? 

In the ISA Management I have selected the network adapter Local Area
Connection 3 as the internal network. Therefore adapters 3 and 5 are
hence treated as external.

The network logic map is as follows: 
IS: Internal Server 
ES: External Server 
ADS: Active Directory SERVER 

IS (Gateway: IP of ICS) ----->  ISS (Gateway: IP of ES) ------> ES 
(        (,,     ( 
                                    |                          | 
                                    |                          |           
                                    |                          | 
                                   ICS          ADS (Website on ISS)  
       (          ,      (,

Therefore IS, ISS, ICS, ADS are in the internal network while ES is
behaving as external network.

After setting up the above networks and configuring it on the ISA
Server 2006. Under the network rule I created a routing rule to route
from external to internal.
Then, I created a firewall rule under the firewall policy of the ISA
Management to allow http connection between the internal and external
After allowing the changes I typed up the IP address of the ADS server
( on internet explore or ES and was able to access the
website. This means there was successful routing happening via ISA
from ES to ADS.
Now I disabled the access rule and click on the "publish a website?
link on the ISA firewall policy. This opened up a web site publishing
rule wizard and I performed the steps stated below:

Give policy a name -> next -> select "allow" ->  next -> select
"publish a website or load balancer" -> next ->  Use "non secured..."
-> next -> type in the internal name of your server which runs the
website (only the hostname here!) -> next -> here  specify the path in
which the website you want to publish resides -> next -> here  the IP
address). -> next -> here created a new listener

-> a new Wizard comes up which again wants a name -> next -> choose
"do not require SSL..." -> next -> Select the appropriate network
and/or a specific IP address you want to use on your external
interface -> next ->  "no authentication" -> next -> next -> finish

Back in the first wizard selected new listener and clicked next ->
next -> next -> next -> finish

Then I went on the ES server and I typed up the IP address of the ADS
server ( on internet explore of ES. It didn't work I got a
page cannot be displayed error. In the ISA Management under the
monitoring logging section it says connection denied default rule
Source Network : Internal and Destination Network: External.

Can any one help? I am really trying to solve this problem but cannot
understand what I need to do next.
Do I have to create a web chaining rule? Configure DNS (I am happy
with IP address though)?

Any kind of help or assistance will be greatly appreciated.
You will be awarded only when I get the system running.
Please ask for any further clarifications. 

Thank you,
