My clients on my network could access FTP servers behind our ISA 06 firewall but they could not create or delete anything on that FTP. I checked to make sure the permissions on the FTP were setup correctly. I narrowed it down to ISA blocking Incoming FTP traffic coming back from the FTP servers. I did some searching and there are many issues out on this. Others issues vary slightly but I did find something that worked for me. I setup the below rule on ISA.

This could be caused by copy protection. Here is how I resolved it:
I ran into problems installing DPM agent on a few of my servers over the network through the DPM admin console. In this case I had to manually install the DPM agent on the servers I wanted to protect. Here are the 4 steps:
1. Locate the 2.0.5820.0 folder on your DPM server here in:
%systemroot%\Program Files\Microsoft DPM\DPM\Agents\RA\
The 2.0.5820.0 folder is here and will have folders i386 and amd64 in it. If you are installing on a 64bit server use the installer from the amd64 folder otherwise just use the i386 folder.
2. Copy to this folder to the local %systemroot% drive on the server you want to protect. I created a folder in on the server I wanted to protect to make things easy called DPMagentinstall
for example c:\DPMagentinstall
3. Open a command prompt. If this is Windows 2008 server be sure to open the command prompt with elevated privileges. Then type: CD c:\DPMagentinstall\DpmAgentInstaller.exe YOURDPMserverFQDN
EXAMPLE: DPMAgentInstaller.exe DPM01.mydomain.com
It will then let you know that your server requires a restart if it was successful.
3CX Phone System for Windows is a software-based IP PBX. This is what we decided to use. We thought about setting up a trixbox server but decided to give 3CX a try.
What you will need:
- 3CX software
- Purchased VOIP number
- Win XP computer (you can use Vista we talk about XP in this article)
- IIS 6 on your XP OS
- A router that can do port forwarding or port mapping
- The 3CX soft phone (you can use X-Lite but we like the TS feature in 3CX soft phone)
- A static IP, FQDN (routable on the internet), or a dynamic IP
- Time to install, configure and test
- On your firewall and or router open Ports 5480, 5482, 5483, 5485,
- Setup a static map or forward of ports: 5060-5100 (TCP and UDP), 9000-9015 (TCP and UDP) and 3400-3499 (TCP and UDP) to your PBX server.
NOTE: forwarding ports 5060-5100 covers Port 5090 (TCP) for the 3CX Tunnel. The 3CX Tunnel is so that users can connect to the PBX server remotely to get an extension.
