New Exchange 2003 Installation - ISA Server Function Clarification Please
Posted on 2006-06-23
Can a Microsoft ISA Server installed in the DMZ and configured as a Front End to an Exchange Server 2003 installed on internal LAN also perform role of Web & FTP server?
In other words, can I set up a Windows 2003 server in the DMZ to be all 3 (ISA, Web, & FTP) server?
I have to install a new E-Mail server for our small organization (35 users, 80 PCs, 2 W2K3 Servers) and install Microsoft Exchange 2003 on it. I do not want to put Exchange 2003 server in DMZ but must set up services for external access like OWA, RPC over HTTP, etc.
We have a PIX firewall, maybe I should not worry about putting Exchange Server 2003 in DMZ, but it would be better not to, correct?
And if I add another Windows server in the DMZ in this triple role would it would not have to be configured as a member server in our AD domain that exists behind INSIDE PIX interface on internal LAN, correct?
What if I brought our Compaq Proliant ML 350 out of retirement for this job? Could it do the job if wiped & reloaded with Microsoft Windows Server 2003 & ISA?
