Pointing to OWA from another computer ??

we use Outlook web access on our exchange server on port 8080.  We have a IIS web server that is taking up port 80.. What the problem is that some conference centers in the world are blocking port 8080 and only letting port 80 in and out.. I want to setup a virtual directory on the IIS server (exchange) to point to the OWA server.  How do I do that ? Do I have to share the folder on the Exchange server were the OWA is sitting ?

thanks Lee

I got around this by requiring https and forcing it in on our unused port 443.  All you do is change the url to include https and make your own certificate.

Why are you not using 443 to secure access to OWA?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

OK, now I'm confused.  Are you saying you can't access OWA from a browser window on a Mac if you use SSL?

That is not a true statement... We Beta test all new versions of MAC OS and we use OWA, Beta Entourage etc.... all day long!

You just get OWA lite

Sage and tricatelli-

I found the solution.  you guys were correct. I openned 443 and purchased a SSL cert. So now the client just uses HTTPS...
As for the mac I left that on 8080 at HTTP

Entourage uses OWA to connect, I don't agree with that but it's what they use.

Wow!  You purchased a certificate?  Someone has money to burn.  I made my own and just tell the users to click through the security warning:)
