asked on

GUI login screen to web access?

We have exchange 2003 with web access setup for clients. I recently seen a GUI interface for a friend that logged into there web access with there company logo, etc. Ours just takes you to a basic pop up window to verify domain/user name and password. How would we add the GUI functionality if we choose? Is it very hard? The most layed out answer will get the points. I'm not in a huge hurry to implement this, just would like to know how.
Thanks!

I just tried but it took me to a page that said invalid syntax. I put in https://exchangeservername+domain/exchange but it took me to the "invalid syntax" page. Is there something I have to enable on the Exchange box?
Have a look at this DOC: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998477(EXCHG.65).aspx

Goto to the section called Forms based authentication.  This doc should give you all you need.

Good Luck!.....:)

I'll try it. Thanks! :)
It is forms based authentication that you need. Do note that it is only available to you if you are using SSL.

So since currently use non ssl for our email, it is not possible? You have to have a seperate IP or route for SSL, right?
You need to have a dedicated IP address for SSL, although if you are currently using port 80 then simply forward 443 as well and buy an SSL certificate.

Okay. Started working on this on our Exchange server. Based on the link by Kutyi http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998477(EXCHG.65).aspx, I started walking through the steps. However, I got the following pop up and want to confirm this before I make a mistake! :)
What does - If SSL encryption is not off-loaded to another source, complete the following:
Configure SSL
Restart the IIS service
What does offload to another source mean?

Offload would mean that something else is doing the SSL certificate work. The Microsoft example is ISA server. The SSL certificate is not on the same server but elsewhere.
