To work around this problem, create an access rule and use the All outbound traffic option that lets all UDP protocols transfer from the destination to the source network. For example, if the ISA Server blocks traffic from a virtual private network (VPN) client to a DNS server that is located in another subnet, you must configure and apply the rule to let traffic transfer from the network of the DNS server to the network of the VPN client.
For more information about how to configure protocols for an access rule, see ISA Server 2004 online Help.
