We are happy to announce the availability of Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 Service Pack 2 (SP2). The service pack is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center.

Here are some of the improvements we are introducing in Forefront TMG SP2: 

  • Site activity report – Forefront TMG SP2 includes a new site activity report that enables you to generate a report showing the data transfer between users and specific websites. This report displays the amount of data transferred to and from different websites, for any
    period that you specify, per user. In addition, you can also display the total data transfer to and from a specific website, per user.  
  • Improved error pages – Forefront TMG SP2 improves the look and feel of web browser error pages and makes it easier to customize the pages. 
  • Kerberos authentication for NLB arrays – Forefront TMG SP2 enables you to allow users to authenticate to a Forefront TMG array with Network Load Balancing (NLB) enabled using the Kerberos version 5 protocol.

  • Hello TMG-Team (or should i say "what´s left of it"),

    i appreciate the new features you bring in with TMG 2010 SP2, but could you please clarify two important things that "Lovers of the Safest-Authentication-Feature-Complete-Most-Stable-and-secure Firewall on this planet need to know":

    1. What the heck will happen to TMG ?! You can´t make a statement like this within the Gartner SWG-Report and leaving all customers and inner-circle-partners in a situation where it´s completely unclear what is going to happen for Months!! now !!

    2. Will there be IPv6-Support for TMG 2010, and if so, will it be in the near future ? Although most customers have no idea what efforts we´re talking about when talking about IPv6 this question is the one EVERY costumer keeps asking, because they don´t want to deploy Software now which they DON`T KNOW if it will be fully supported with IPv6 at some time in the future (even if not near). Even a "No, there will never be IPv6 in TMG 2010 is BETTER than NOTHING"



  • after upgrade to 2sp i have this:

    cheers )

  • Hi!

    We had to uninstall SP2 since it was crashing the FW Service all the time.

    Uninstalling is no fun, too: Service dependencies missing (the HTTP thing) and you need to set the TMG services to "Automatic (Delayed Start)" to get it back up again...


  • What is the point for releasing any Service packs for TMG? We are all going to migrate our coustomers to something else very soon.

  • thank you
