Exchange Frontend/Backend server to prepare for I-phone 2

I am having some difficulties getting my activesync to work. I am currently trying to test it using a Samsung Blackjack in preperation for the release of the I-phone 2. I believe the problems I am having are related to having a backend server only and using a GoDaddy SSL. I have found http://searchexchange.techtarget.com/tip/0,289483,sid43_gci1311902,00.html which has given me a work around that I am about to try but I would prefer to use SSL which apparently requires a front end server.

I would like to know if I have to purchase an additional license for exchange 2003 for the front end server? I would also like to know if anyone else has had luck getting activesync to work with SSL and only on a backend server.

Yes you will need additional license for front end server.

If you don't want to use front end server go with method 2 in this KB Article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817379

Great thanks for the info.

I actually did make the changes and I am waiting to reboot the server this evening. I just wanted to use SSL so I am probably going to put in a front end server

If you already have and firewall or ISA (SSL offload) you can have the certificate installed in it and redirect http inside. This way you will get SSL for the client and will not have to install Front-end Server.
