OWA in a workgroup?

Can I install OWA in a DMZ as a member of a workgroup?  I do not want to have a domain member on the DMZ?

OWA requires the ability to authenticate to the Domain. Actually you might be able to if you open ports 136 and 137 I think but then you are asking for really bad things at that point. A better solution is to put in inside the firewall, map a port through to its IP address and allow your firewall do its job. Either that or add a second firewall, FW2 (see below) that allows port 136 and 137 to map through and FW1 that allows port 80 (and 443 possibly) to map through. This way the OWA IIS box is accessable and can then still authenticate but ports 136 and 137 are not visible to the Internet at large.

INET ---> FW1 ---> OWA ---> FW2 --->

goodluck!
