I have a diagram but don't know what it means

    Question

  • I have a diagram but don't know what it means, i know that it is about ISA servers - something like internet, vpn,  flows troy ISA server.

    There are web servers, exchange servers, but what does this symbol  mean?, is it ISA server or some router ?

  • Hi,

    that symbol is often used for "router", and your diagram suggests the same.

    Usually, the "firewall" symbol would be used for ISA/TMG etc

  •    The symbol you highlight is usually used for a router, as Don said. Since the sites are so far apart, I suspect the links would be VPN rather than dedicated lines so ISA server is a possibility. I would think these links are not firewalled, as they are essentially internal communication links. Only the Internet connections would be firewalled (the fire and the wall are pretty obvious in the diagram).
