! ISA Firewall Client on ‘Longhorn’ | Windows Server 2008

Hi,

Last week I saw a scene and for this moment we have only a ‘workaround’.

If you need to use internet from LH (Longhorn) | ‘Windows Server 2008′ through ISA Server the only way is configuring proxy on IE and/or using gateway on network interface.

The version avaliable to download of Firewall Client isn’t supported on LH Server but the ISA Team is already working in the next beta version.

Thanks to Brian Keller and Jim Harrison.

Bye,

! Resources for virtualized environments

Hi all,

From Blog of Danilo Bordini.

Windows Server Virtualization Calculators

The Windows Server Virtualization Calculators provide two ways to estimate the number and cost of Windows Server Standard Edition, Enterprise Edition and Datacenter Edition licenses needed for your virtualization scenarios to help you determine the most cost-effective edition of Windows Server.

Calculator 1 is designed to estimate the licenses and cost of Windows Server by editions and numerous Microsoft server products on a single, physical server. Calculator 2 is designed to estimate the licenses and cost of only Windows Server by edition for one or multiple physical servers.

The calculators are pre-populated with the US dollar Open agreement Estimated Retail Prices that you can update with your organization’s prices for more accurate estimates.

!Microsoft Security Bootcamp on Mexico

Hi,

Next week, from 4 to 8 June I’ll be on a Microsoft Security Bootcamp with Forefront/IAG/ISA on México.

This event will be destined for countries of Latin America and I will be representing Brazil there. Will be there only one person of each country.

I hope that I’ll have access to broad band to be able to post some news to you about this event/training.

Thanks, again, to Frois and Ana [from Microsoft Brazil] by this opportunity.
