Out Look web access, security ????

Hi Experts,

I need to access "Out look web access" out side form the building. So, I have assigned an static IP to the firewall and added a Forward/NAT rule after that I can access the Out look web access from out side. I have only forwarded port 80. (My firewall is iptables on LINUX)

But is there more secure way of doing this? Because Internet request are directly coming to the LAN from the out side.

Please advice !

The most secure way, or one that seems more secure, is a vpn soultion to allow you access to the internal network. That way you don't open the exchange server to the rest of the world, and users have a secure tunnel into your network. There are steps you can take to keep users from going inside to outside to the static nat you have for the ip your natting...
Obviously they weren't going inside to outside before... so did you just change the dns name of the outlook server? so now they are going inside to outside, back inside essentially.

No, did not change anything on the server, I'm accessing it using the IP address over the Internet.
