Can "Microsoft Exchange Server ActiveSync Web Administration Tool" run on backend sever?

Hi

I have got Exchange 2003 Std SP2 running on Windows 2000 server SP4 as a front-end server. As far as I understand the ActiveSync web admin tool must run a server running Exch 2003 SP2 on Windows 2003 server. Some of my back-end servers have this config.

Is it OK to run the web admin tool on the backend server? Or must it be installed on the front-end where the activesync clients connect?

Thanks for your help!

It simply polls the domain for information, so it doesn't matter where you run it.
I have run it on a workstation before.

Don't get too excited about the tool - it is practically useless. It should be renamed the remote wipe admin tool as that is all it does.
