FIX: An incorrect result is returned when you test a Web publishing rule by using the Traffic Simulator feature in ISA Server 2006 with Service Pack 1

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006, you configure a Web publishing rule.
  • The Web publishing rule uses a Web listener that listens only for the connections on the HTTPS port. By default, the HTTPS port is port 443.
  • You use the Traffic Simulator feature that is introduced in ISA Server 2006 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) to test the Web publishing rule.
  • In the Destination Parameters section of the Traffic Simulator page, you enter an HTTP URL.
In this scenario, the simulation result for the HTTP URL is "Allowed" even though the Web publishing rule is configured for HTTPS.
To resolve this problem, apply the hotfix that is mentioned in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
