Publishing FogBugz 6 through ISA Server 2006

...seems to cause some issues.

It's a fairly straightforward publishing rule - actually, I've just upgraded today from FogBugz 4 to 6, and the publishing rule is the same as the one that worked successfully with FogBugz 4 - basically, publish everything under the /FogBugz directory on the internal web server to /FogBugz on the external site, with no extra bells or whistles to the rule.

Trouble is, when looking at the site, it comes up with a whole passel of formatting issues and JavaScript errors. The easiest way, probably, to explain is by demonstration, so:

I'm pretty certain that it's not a problem with FogBugz itself, since accessing it internally through the URL of the internal web server produces a perfectly working site.

Anyone else seen this one?  Ideas?

Thanks in advance,

When I go to that web page in either Firefox or IE7, I don't see any formatting issues or Javascript errors.  Do the errors only happen when you log in perhaps? 

If you send us a screenshot at maybe we can debug this further. 

Oh, also, have you seen the KnowledgeBase article at  That may be a related problem with Javascript errors with ISA Server, and can be fixed with a Microsoft patch.

Okay. This gets stranger and stranger - I just tried looking at the page from a machine outside our network, and when doing that, I get the same results as you - no JavaScript errors, no page corruption, everything works fine.  It's only when I try accessing it using the external URL from inside our network here that the problem occurs.

(Which is good, I suppose, since at least external clients won't have a problem - bit annoying for the internal users, but livable with for now.)

I've taken screenshots of the various JavaScript errors and the final result, and I'll e-mail them in forthwith.

Also, w.r.t. that knowledge base article, I did find that, but it seems to be referring to a problem with ISA Server 2004 - I haven't been able to find an equivalent article for ISA 2006.

For anyone else who has this problem with ISA 2006, and finds this thread, I believe that I've tracked it down to a bug in the HTTP Compression filter in ISA 2006. Disabling that seems to work around the problem.
