The FPCNetwork object represents a single network defined in an array. A network is a rule element, which can contain one or more ranges of IP addresses and domains. The networks that are defined for an ISA Server computer must include an IP address bound to a network adapter on the ISA Server computer and should reflect the physical network topology as viewed from it. Any host having an IP address that is included in a network should be able to exchange traffic with any other host having an IP address that is included in the network without passing it through the ISA Server computer. Rules can be applied to one or more networks, or to all IP addresses except those in a specified network.
ISA Server is installed with the following predefined networks:
- Local Host. This network represents the ISA Server computer. All traffic that comes from or to an ISA Server computer is considered to have passed by way of the Local Host network. It includes all the IP addresses bound to network adapters on the local ISA Server computer, and the reserved loopback IP address 127.0.0.1. The Local Host network cannot be modified or deleted.
- External. This network includes all IP addresses that are not included in any other enterprise or array-level network. The default External network cannot be modified or deleted.
- Internal. The ranges of IP addresses included in the Internal network are initially specified during the installation process. The Internal network cannot be deleted.
- VPN Clients. This network contains addresses of currently connected VPN clients. The possible IP addresses that can be assigned to VPN clients and moved into this network are included in the VPN static address pool (VpnStaticAddressPool) of the ISA Server computer. The VPN Clients network cannot be deleted.
- Quarantined VPN Clients. This network contains addresses of VPN clients that have not yet cleared quarantine. The Quarantined VPN Clients network cannot be deleted.
In ISA Server Enterprise Edition, the FPCNetwork object provides properties for specifying the user-defined enterprise networks that are included in the network and for accessing the configuration settings of the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster on the network.
The FPCNetwork object representing a specific network can be referenced through the FPCRef object held in the following properties:
- The AutoDialedNetwork property of the FPCDialingConfiguration object.
- The Network property of the FPCIPOnNetwork object.
- The NetworkToObtainDHCP property of the FPCVpnConfiguration object.
Networks are specified in the following properties by including references to the applicable FPCNetwork objects in the FPCRefs collection held in these properties:
- The Networks property of the FPCNetworkSet object.
- The Networks property of the FPCSelectionIPs object.
- The NetworksToListenOn property of the FPCVpnConfiguration object.

InheritanceThis object inherits from the FPCPersist object, which contains methods and properties related to the persistent storage of an object's data. They include methods for exporting the object's data to and importing it from an XML document.
The FPCNetwork object does not define any methods.
The FPCNetwork object has the following properties.
|AutoDiscoveryPort||Gets or sets the port to bind to if the EnableAutoDiscoveryPort property is set to True.|
|CalculatedEEIpRangeSet||Gets or sets an FPCReadOnlyIpRangeSet collection that contains the effective set of IP addresses ranges included in the network, which is the union of all the IP address ranges defining the network and all the IP address ranges defining the enterprise networks included in the network (available only in Enterprise Edition).|
|ClientConfig||Gets an FPCClientConfig object that provides access to configuration settings for Web proxy clients and Firewall clients in the network.|
|Description||Gets or sets the description of the network.|
|EnableAutoDiscoveryPort||Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether the Web proxy binds to a specific port so that Web proxy clients on the network can automatically discover the ISA Server computer.|
|EnableFirewallClients||Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether Firewall clients on the network are supported.|
|EnableWebProxyClients||Gets or sets a Boolean value that indicates whether Web proxy clients on the network are supported.|
|EnterpriseNetworks||Gets an FPCRefs collection that contains references to the FPCEnterpriseNetwork objects defining the enterprise networks included in the network (available only in Enterprise Edition).|
|IpRangeSet||Gets an FPCIpRangeSet collection that contains the set of IP address ranges defining the network.|
|LDT||Gets an FPCLDT collection that contains the entries in the local domain table (LDT).|
|Name||Gets or sets the name of the network.|
|NetworkConnectionType||Gets or sets a value from the FpcNetworkConnectionType enumerated type that specifies the type of connection to the network.|
|NetworkType||Gets a value from the FpcNetworkTypes enumerated type that specifies the type of network.|
|NLBCluster||Gets an FPCNLBCluster object that represents the Network Load Balancing (NLB) cluster on the network (available only in Enterprise Edition).|
|Predefined||Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the network is predefined.|
|VpnConfiguration||Gets an FPCVpnNetworkConfiguration object that provides access to the configuration settings for site-to-site virtual private network (VPN) connections to the network.|
|WebListenerProperties||Gets an FPCWebListenerProperties object that contains the properties of the Web listener for outgoing requests from the network.|
|CancelWaitForChanges||Cancels the registration established by the WaitForChanges method (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
|CanImport||Returns a Boolean value that indicates whether the object's properties can be imported from the specified XML document.|
|Export||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to the specified XML document.|
|ExportToFile||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to the specified XML file.|
|GetServiceRestartMask||Retrieves a 32-bit bitmask of the FpcServices enumerated type that specifies which services need to be restarted for currently unsaved changes to take effect.|
|Import||Recursively copies the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from the specified XML document to persistent storage.|
|ImportFromFile||Recursively copies the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from the specified XML file to persistent storage.|
|LoadDocProperties||Provides the XML document's properties so that you can know what information can be imported from the document.|
|Refresh||Recursively reads the values of all the properties of the object and of its subobjects from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.|
|Save||Recursively writes the current values of all the properties of the object and its subobjects to persistent storage.|
|WaitForChanges||Registers to wait for an event indicating that the contents of the object have changed (for use in C and C++ programming only).|
|PersistentName||Gets the persistent name of the object. The persistent name of an object is a name that is unique for the object at the respective level of the COM object hierarchy.|
|VendorParametersSets||Gets an FPCVendorParametersSets collection that can hold sets of custom data for extending the object.|
This object implements the IFPCNetwork interface. In Enterprise Edition, this object also implements the IFPCEENetwork interface.
|Client||Requires Windows XP.|
|Server||Requires Windows Server 2003. Requires Windows Server 2003 or Windows 2000 for ISA Server 2004 Standard Edition.|
|Version||Requires Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2006 or ISA Server 2004.|
