Publish PCSchool Student Management School Administration Software Web Spider through Forefront TMG/ISA – Case Study

This article outlines the steps taken to publish the PCSchool Student Management School Administration Software Web Spider Portal though a secure SSL connection ensuring only sucure access to this critical Student Management data.

Our Setup:Spider server – Windows Server 2008 R2

Firewall – Forefront TMG

There are two ways to setup and publish Spider securely using certificates. I use a wild card cert for all web app connections.

1. Create SSL connection from client to firewall.

2. Create SSL connection from client to Spider app passing through the TMG/ISA Firewall.

I have used SSL to the TMG/ISA firewall as the Spider app is published behind TMG/ISA rather than in front of it. I have done this to have domain authentication to access the Spider app first rather than leave Spider out in the open.
