How do I get Outlook Web Access to work without HTTPS

China does not allow a https connections, so one cannot connect to outlook Web Access when in China, is there any way to allow the connection to be on http (port 80)

by default it should be working via http.  as long as your firewall allows access to port 80
i have a concern here in that your information is not secured.  i would look for a secure way to send mail rather than make it unsecured.
but hey that is just me.

Checking your email unencrypted, especially in China, would not exactly rank under one of the wiser things to be done. What Exchange are you using? 2007? 2003? 2003 on SBS? This is important to know, as 2007 automatically includes redirects for SSL, while you have to turn it on in 2003.

I am using Exchange2003 with ISA2004.
When you open the Outlook Web Access page in http, it redirects it to a https session, I would like to be able to stop this.
I would agree that it is not one of the wiser things to do, and I have put forward my concerns

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

one sec, let me check an SBS server, there are a few different ways you can redirect it.

In IIS, in the properties of the Default Website > Home Directory...do you have a redirection there?

I have made no changes to the default setup and it is working fine except for the fact that China is blocking the https port, and when someone travels to China they cannot read their mail.
All Service Packs and hotfixes etc are loaded, and everything is up to date

In IIS, expand Default Website, then go to Directory Security. Click on Edit under Security Permissions, then uncheck the Require SSL.

tntmax,
I did look at that but is very much for ISA2000 and Exchange 2000, and does not have much to go on in resolving the Exchange 2003 ISA2004 problems

tntmaxCommented:
yes, but you can use that for 2003 as well if you wanted. However, see my next post.

Thanks, I went to Exchange under "Default Web Site" and changed the SSL Setting there, and it is now working on Http
