OWA #73

I am trying to use Outlook Web Access here is what I have

Server 2003 (member server) running exchange 2003.  I want to allow people
within the company to be able to jump on a computer outside our network
punch in a url which will allow them to log in with their user name and
password to OWA.  Our current set up is a sonicwall firewall/vpn device with
everything behind it.  I want them to be able to use the OWA without having
to use the VPN.  I have been using the book Mastering Exchange server 2003
(By Barry Gerber) as my guide and have followed step by step how to map the
drive and get it set up.

I can link a network card on the server to a public static ip address and i
am off and running no problems.  But I do not want to keep a public static
ip address on our server.  Does anyone know how I can do this with out using
VPN or a public static ip.

Thanks
Mell

Have you tried using NAT?

well in my sonic wall settings it says NAT is enabled but outside of having
it enabled, I am not sure what else I would need to do.

Per the book i opened the proper ports, and in rules i have those directed
to the static private ipaddress of the server running exchange 2003 (which
is what I thought I was suppose to do) But it does not work (maybe i am
doing something wrong here, i type in the address bar the public ip address
for the sonic wall then do the /exchange?)

Thanks for the help

-- Exchange needs these ports to be open on your sonic wall Fire wall.


HTTP: port 80
HTTPS: Port 443 (SSL)  
SMTP: Port 25 

Answer to your question is yes, 
your public IP/exchange will get you to OWA

http://www.petri.co.il/configuring_forms_based_authentication_in_exchange_2003.htm

Do not RUN OWA on port 80, use SSL Port 443, 
I have included links, for you to take a look

You have to setup a NAT policy in the SonicWall to map an external IP 
address to the internal address. Check the SonicWall instructions for the 
process commonly called publishing a web server to the Internet.

Users cannot login to OWA after Exchange 2K3 was moved into different OU
I created a new OU named member servers, and moved the exchange 2k3 server into it. After I moved it, only the administrator was able to login to OWA successfully. No users could login to OWA.

OWA logon with default domain
Since upgrading to Exchange 2003 for my users to log onto OWA they must use the domain\username method. Through much searching I have found a lot of people trying to find a solution to have the domain default so they only have to use their username and password as I had it in 2000. I found there is a hotfix for SB server but have not seen anything for Standard or Enterprise. Anyone know how to fix this without using forms based authentication?

Cannot access OWA
I am using exchange2000, there is one front web-server. Recently people report they cannot login through our web-page. I found that there is only SystemMailBox and WWW-SA under the exchange virtual directory. They are using ISUR_USER access account. And I'm afraid that I had changed the ISUR_USER password before. I change the ISUR_USER password in IIS, but people still cannot access. How can I do? First make sure you have all your virtual directories, you can reset them if you are not sure. See if this works first. If not proceed to next step. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/88...

OWA with multiple Exchange Servers
I have two Exchange 2003 servers setup on the same domain with power users on one box and everyone else on the other. When I open the OWA client on ServerA and login, if the users is on ServerA, it works fine. If the user is on ServerB, then I am prompted to login again and then it authenticates to ServerB and it works fine. So Exchange knows that the user is not on ServerA and sends it to ServerB for authentication. Is there a way to pass the credentials to ServerB automatically so I don't have to authenticate twice?
