I have a question. Im setting up a server that supports OWA and outlook anywhere.
I have a asas 5505 that i want to set up with SSL vpn so that remote users can launch Remote desktop and access their own computer in the office. When i go to https://asa5505outsideip i go to the iss menu.

Any input?

I have not done the modifications to the asa yet but the example from cisco says that i should go to
https://externaipoftheasa when i am finished with the setup to get ssl vpn access-

But when i try to go to that site today i get to IIS and i was wondering how i would work around this?
I still need the OWA to work, so i can disable the entire IIS

Do you have a static NAT pointing external traffic to your IIS box?

The best thing would be to configure the ssl vpn on a nonstandard port. I usually use port 1025 for all installations.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

>>I still need the OWA to work, so i can disable the entire IIS

publish OWA on the Clientless portal? you should ony have a problem if you need Direct Push EMail or if you need to forward Https - because once you enable webvpn on the outside interface you cannot forward https.

The only way round that problem is to have another external interface (which means having a security plus licensed firewall)

>>so that remote users can launch Remote desktop and access their own computer in the office. When i go to

yeah you can do that as well from the portal - there is a Java RDP applet that you can use to RDP straight from the portal

You can run the VPN on a different port, say 444 and still forward 443 to the OWA server
Then for vpn you access it by https://outsideip:444

You can use the self-signed cert. Users will get warnings, but can either ignore them or install the cert into the trusted root list on their pc.

If using ASDM, under Configuration | Remote Access VPN | Clientless SSL VPN Access | Connection profiles
In the right pane, see  Access Port: [443  ]   <== change the port here
