Outlook Public Folder Published To Internet

I need a way to publish one public folder containing a calndar to a web site. I need this to be updatable on the web site, as well as within Outlook public folders. Is this possible?
Thank you

Thanks. All of those publish a view of the calendar from what I see. I need the calendar to update dynamically from the internet or from public folders. I could use OWA, but I don't want the outside users to have an email box, or access to other internal public folders.

If you give a single PF Anonymous Access (in Outlook, for example), it may be possible to open without a login, using a direct URL http://servername/public/foldername .
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Is that done thru exchange server or outlook or iis?
LeeDerbyshireCommented:
Which?  The permissions, or the URL?  You can do the permissions in Outlook, or Exchange System Manager.  For the URL, you just type it into your browser's address bar.  For instance, if you have a PF named 'Contacts', you would type http://servername/public/Contacts .  If there is a space in the name, you escape it: http://servername/public/Shared%20Contacts .  If there are extended characters, it gets complicated.

OK. I added anonymous access to the calendar. I type in the following: exadmin/chantalcorp.com/public%20folders/product%20development/pdcalendar after the web share url and get a 503 Service Unavailable error.
LeeDerbyshireCommented:
It will need to be something like this:

http://chantalcorp.com/public/product%20development/pdcalendar 

I am guessing at the chantalcorp.com bit, because that is what you used.  Replace it with whatever server name you use for OWA if it's wrong.

Hello. Thanks. I realized the issue and it worked. Are there any security implications with this setup. It looks as if browsing starts and stops on that calendar alone. Just want to make sure noone can get into Exchange Box.

Best way to find out is to try to see what else you can access - you may find misconfigured permissions somewhere.  Check the permissions on this folder in Outlook.  it sounds like you want Anonymous = Reviewer.  The more detailed perms are displayed in a table underneath.  If this is public-facing, though, you need to try and see what an anonymous user can get away with - as a kind of security audit.
