The FPCRoutingRules collection provides access to the set of FPCRoutingRule objects that represent the routing rules, or Web chaining rules, defined in an ISA Server array. Web chaining rules determine whether a Web proxy client request is sent directly to the requested destination, to another upstream proxy server, or to a specified host.
Note Web chaining rules apply to requests from Web proxy clients, including requests from Web browsers running on Firewall client computers. If you want to foward requests from Firewall clients and SecureNAT clients that are not handled by the ISA Server Web proxy to an upstream ISA Server computer, you must configure firewall chaining by setting the properties of the FPCFirewallChaining object.
ISA Server is installed with the Default Web chaining rule. This rule, together with the Default cache rule, initially specifies that all Web proxy client requests are sent as HTTP requests directly to the applicable Web server if a valid version of the requested object that can be returned to the client is not found in the ISA Server cache. The Default Web chaining rule is applied last, and its position in the list of rules cannot be changed. You can modify the Default Web chaining rule's action and how it redirects outgoing Web proxy client requests, but you cannot delete it.

InheritanceThis collection 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 FPCRoutingRules collection defines the following methods.
|Add||Creates a new FPCRoutingRule object, adds it to the collection, and returns a reference to it.|
|Item||Retrieves the requested FPCRoutingRule object from the collection.|
|MoveDown||Moves the specified routing rule one step down the list of rules, which corresponds to their order of application.|
|MoveUp||Moves the specified routing rule one step up the list of rules, which corresponds to their order of application.|
|Remove||Removes the specified FPCRoutingRule object from the collection.|
The FPCRoutingRules collection has the following properties.
|_NewEnum||Gets an enumerator object for the collection.|
|Count||Gets the number of FPCRoutingRule objects in the collection.|
|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 properties of the collection, its elements, and their subobjects can be imported from the specified XML document.|
|Export||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the collection, its elements, and their subobjects to the specified XML document.|
|ExportToFile||Recursively writes the stored values of all the properties of the collection, its elements, and their 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 collection, its elements, and their subobjects from the specified XML document to persistent storage.|
|ImportFromFile||Recursively copies the values of all the properties of the collection, its elements, and their 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 collection, its elements, and their subobjects from persistent storage, overwriting any changes that have not been saved.|
|Save||Recursively writes the current values of all the properties of the collection, its elements, and their 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 collection. 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 collection.|
This collection implements the IFPCRoutingRules 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.|
