asked on

exchange outlook anywhere setup

I got outlook anywhere installed  events showed up in event viewer after about 15 mins
 
During the setup I named  the first entry webmail.tgcsnet.com
 
That’s was the easy part
 
Now my IIS default web site I had to change the port to 8080 I did this on the exchange 2000 server and had owa working
The reason is I have a web site on the same network and it uses port 80
 
Now for DNS
 
On my internal DNS servers
 
I have several forward lookup zones
 
Our.network .tgcsnet.com
This has all my computers and servers that registrer
 
Tgcsnet.com
This has my mx records in it for exchange
 
Mail    host A      72.88.223.20
Mail    mail exchange MX     (10) tgcs005.our.network.tgcsnet.com
 
On my ISP site
 
ARecord      @      72.88.223.20
ARecord      mail      72.88.223.20
CNAME      mailx      pop.secureserver.net
CNAME      smtp      smtp.tgcsnet.com
CNAME      www      @
MX      @      mail.tgcsnet.com
MX      @      smtp.tgcsnet.com
 
 
Also what would you recommend for the internal and external url
 
Any suggestions for this and the dns would be helpful

Ur question actually depends on what version of exchange you are using...

If it is exchange 2007/2010, it should be pretty simple enough... just go ahead and enable Outlook Anywhere from the console.

P.S: Do not change the ports of the Default Web Site as it might cause other issues.

In case you are still having issues with outlook anywhere, I would rather recommend you run a test on https://testexchangeconnectivity.com and post the results... that way we can have a better idea...

Let us know how it goes.

I need to use something other than port 80 so I changed it to port 8080

I did this before I enabled outlook anywhere

I created srv record on domain site
You also need to get a UCC or wildcard certificate and add domains webmail.tgcsnet.com and autodiscover.tgcsnet.com. Without autodiscover OAB, and OOF aren't going to work, which will prevent RPC over HTTPS from working.

I changed the srv record to use port 443

not sure how long it takes for the network to update with my changes

I am talking about IIS web site port 80 for the default web site

I host a web site on the same network and need port 80 for the web site
on 2000 server I used port 8080 in IIS for the wefault and my users used this to accees owa

http://mail.tgcsnet.com:8080/exchange

that worked
can you use 443 for exchange? it doesn't really use 80 anywhere
on iis for the default web site sure
oh the tcp port is 8080 and the ssl port is 443
