ISA 2004 Seucre Bridging Mode not working
Posted on 2007-10-16
I have followed the following guides both diligently twice over but still can't get the Bridging mode "Secure connection to clients and mail server" to work:
-Publishing OWA Sites using ISA Firewall Web Publishing Rules (2004) Version 1.1 - Thomas Shinder
-Step-by-step Guide to Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 SP2 Mobile messaging with Windows Mobile 5.0-based Devices.
If I use the Bridging mode, "Standard connections only", it works with HTTPS (SSL) but not with the Secure connection to clients and mail server.
From ISA and on the internal network, there is no problem. My problem is trying to access the OWA site externally from the internet. I can access via HTTPS only when my Bridging mode is set to Standard connections only on the ISA 2004. If I put it to the Secure connection to clients and mail server mode as suggested by the 2 guides above, I get the following error:
Error Code: 408. The operation timed out. The remote server did not respond within the set time allowed. The server might be unavailable at this time. Try again later or contact the server administrator. (12002)
Some things to note :.
-My Cisco Pix is configured to forward all https traffic to my ISA 2004 server.
-Any traffic from the internal interface of Cisco Pix is allowed to go out.
-I am a newbie at configuring OWA and OMA and this is my test lab which is not working currently
Any help appreciated.
