This is an initial guide to installing Microsoft TMG 2010. This software is the newest version of what was known as ISA server 2004/2006.
Prerequisites: You must be running at least Server 2008 Service Pack 2 before using this program.
This setup takes place on a virtual machine running Server 2008 x64 SP2. And uses the x64 version of TMG 2010. This is a fresh install process, and not an upgrade scenario.
This guide will be using Forefront TMG services and Management.
Then just follow the prompts and click install to begin the installation. This step will take longer depending on your system specs.
Click “Configure Network Settings”.
Follow the wizard to enter in your domain name and how you want the server to be identified.
Enter a description for the change you’re making. Note that you can also click the “Export” button. This will backup your entire configuration before applying your new changes. This way you can revert back to the current state if your new changes break anything. Since this is the initial configuration, there is only a blank slate to revert back to. However, when making subsequent changes, you should always backup your configuration before applying your new settings.
TMG 2010 gives you a nice new dashboard to view stats about what’s going on with your network. The column on the left is similar to ISA 2004/2006, but it has a few new options. You now have separate sections for Firewall Policy, and Web Access Policy. Web Access Policy is where you will want to make browser proxy changes. There you can also change what port the web proxy is running on and make sure your client computers are configured accordingly.
You are now able to start adding rules for your access policies and applying them in the same way that you applied the initial configuration.
Additional information about configuration or features can be found by visiting the TMG 2010 website.
