5 Critical Settings Not Available in the Forefront TMG 2010 Management Console

Microsoft Forefront TMG 2010I’ve been working with Microsoft Forefront TMG 2010 and its predecessors (dating back to Microsoft Proxy Server 2.0) for many years. One of the hallmarks of this great product was its intuitive management console (ISA 2000 not withstanding of course!). As great as the TMG 2010 GUI is though, there are still a number of important configuration settings that can only be viewed or changed using the command line. In my latest (and last!) 5 Critical Settings Not Available in the Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 Management ConsoleI share a few of these setting and demonstrate how to configure them using the command line commands or scripts.

Configuring Internal Load Balancing in Microsoft Azure

Configuring Internal Load Balancing in Microsoft AzureHave I mentioned I love using Microsoft Azure Infrastructure-as-a-Service? Perhaps once or twice. 🙂 Azure IaaS allows me to extend my on-premises test lab to the cloud and provide tremendous flexibility for some of the projects I’m working on. Occasionally I’ll have a need to create a load-balanced cluster of servers for testing, which on-premises can often easily be accomplished using the native Windows Network Load Balancing (NLB) feature. However, NLB isn’t supported in the cloud. Thankfully Microsoft recently added a load balancing feature in Azure to address this need. Read my latest article on CloudComputingAdmin.com to learn more!
