Remote Access to Exchange 2003 Server Recommendation Request
Posted on 2006-10-29
Installed new MS Exchange 2003 Server & set up RPC over HTTP (ROH) connectivity (on internal LAN behind inside interface of PIX515 FW).
Works great, now working on providing staff remote access to email solution.
With some help from ExEx, for a test I successfully configured Outlook 2003 on a couple of our department's "loaner" laptops for remote access to the Exchange server using ROH. These test laptops were initially configured while on the internal LAN before taking them off site and verifying that Outlook was indeed connecting to the internal Exchange 2003 server via HTTPS. (Setting them up while on the LAN with the Exchange server first seemed to be necessary to get ROH to work from remote location later).
This test seems to exclude ROH as a remote email access solution for staff members wanting Exchange access from their homes using their personal PCs, correct?
ROH is only a functional remote email access solution for those staff members who have been issued company laptops that are members of the organization's domain and can therefor be brought on site for the initial configuration of ROH access, correct?
Staff without a company laptop should use OWA for remote access to email, correct?
It is possible to configure the Exchange 2003 Server to support both ROH & OWA remote connections, correct?
