Server redo and OWA

Posted on 2009-02-16

We had just replaced our failed exchange 2000 server with a new exchange 2007. I was not with the company when they had set up their Outlook Web Access on the server previously, and I am not sure how to get it set up on the new exchange server. What I do know is that OWA is enabled by default on 2007, and that a port was set up on the firewall for our old server to forward requests to that exchange server (ie OWA does work internally by going to the http:nameofserver/owa site but it does not work externally. So I am sure there is some place I need to go on the exchange server to change the port that it is listening for. I have kept the IPs the same for both the old and new server. Can someone tell me where to go to change the port that owa listens for?

    Trying to get OWA to work on another port other than 80/443 is troublesome and I don't think it is supported any longer due to the use of web services by Exchange. If that was done for "security" then I simple say that you do not get security via obscurity.

    Switch the self generated SSL certificate for a commercial certificate and open port 443.
