Reviews - What do customers think about Configuring ISA Server 2000?
Very good take on ISA 2000 Oct 28, 2004
As far as I'm concerned, this is The best book on ISA 2000 (much better than the MS publication). Starting of with basics on the different types of firewalls, it soon goes into detail as far as the three implementation uses of ISA. Although will soon be outdated (especially with the release of ISA 2004), this is still a must-buy for all you ISA 2000 admins out there.
The ONLY book to by on ISA Server May 14, 2003
I have attended two of Dr. Shinder's seminars in the last 12 months, and he is the absolute authority on this topic. The book is written by and for folks who actually are responsible for deploying ISA; without it you are lost. The "Publishing Services to the Internet" chapter alone will save you at least two days of work if you are trying to work through all of the DNS entries required to do this the right way.
Superb from First to Last!! Apr 29, 2003
When buying this, I was in the position of having to learn it quickly so that I could hit the ground running with my new job. This book certainly does this. Giving precise explanations of every aspect of isa server, included undocumented knowledge that is also very useful! Every aspect is drilled in time and time again so that by the end, it cant fail to have stuck. A must read for anyone wanting to know the nuts and bolts of ISA Server.
Get this book if you run ISA Server Apr 7, 2003
I don't usually write reviews of technical books that I read, but in this case I felt compelled to do so, because of how good this book really is (and also to counter the wildly inaccurate critique submitted by the reader from London). This is easily one of the best technical/security books I've ever read. Reading the book, you get the sense that Dr. Shinder knows more about ISA Server than even the folks at Microsoft who developed it. There was not a single thing that I looked for and did not find. And in most cases, the coverage was more detailied and exhaustive than what I expected. I appreciate it when an author actaully takes the time to research, test, and document very complicated scenarios the way this book does.
hackneyed writing and frustrating content Apr 3, 2003
"In this chapter, we start getting into the specifics of planning and implementing an ISA Server solution for your network." Chapter one of this book uses the word "solution" thirty-one times, and much of the book's writing uses similarly embarassing IT marketing-speak. This makes perfect sense when you flip through the beginning and end of the book and find adverts for commercial web sites, general knowledge courses, and "corporate network training." Shameless promotions in the form of URLs appear in every chapter and at the bottom of each page! Through the book, you deal with hundreds of brilliant gems like, "An intranet in its simplest form is an internal, private Web" (116). Then, when you need to troubleshoot a problem, you find a scarcity of helpful information. For example, I had a troublesome authentication problem that I though might relate to the autodiscovery on client machines. The book has no useful information on the relationship between authentication and auto vs. manaul proxy settings, even though MS addressed the very issue well before SP1 for ISA. The troubleshooting section on authentication is only one page, and it merely explains the three authentication types and suggests that your most likely problem is not enabling the correct types! I run a small W2K network and have to manage all the major components of W2K, Exchange, and ISA. I've found books by Mark Minasi and Jim McBee to be helpful and even fun to read. This book isn't even close. I've had more success finding help on MS's Technet, and that's a sorry indictment.
