SBS 2008 and Exchange 2007/Outlook Anywhere Security Certificate Question
Posted on 2010-09-14
I have a client with a small business server. They are a non-profit and are trying to avoid any unnecessary expendatures. They do not have a static IP and going static would cost them a considerable amount more per month so I am using DDNS to create a valid hostname that they can use to reach the SBS from outside the LAN. I haven't worked much with DDNS and certs but is it even possible to utilize Outlook Anywhere when your ip changes? I know in order for it to work if you are using SSL is for the certificate to be installed into the trusted root certification authorities on the client side. I have noticed that after installing the cert, every couple of hours if I browse to the OWA via the hostname I receive a security certificate warning and have to re-install. I think the change of IP is triggering this. Is there a type of Cert I can create that will allow for the IP to change? Or is it IE that is registering the IP and when I browse to the SBS and the ip is different...it rejects the cert. Any help is appreciated.
For the exchange server...I am using the SBS POP connector and a smart host to send and receive mail and it is working great.
