OCS Consolidated Edge or Reverse Proxy?
Posted on 2011-02-22
I'm fairly new at OCS and unfortunately expected to learn it. I have a very basic question that I can't seem to find a straightforward answer to.
So, to me... it looks like a Consolidated Edge Server that sits in the DMZ does the same thing as a Reverse Proxy. Is this true?
If it's not true, could someone explain to me the big differences?
Does the Consolidated Edge Server handle voice/video/conferencing over the web whereas reverse proxy wouldn't? I feel like that's skewed because wouldn't the reverse proxy just trick remote users or federated partners into thinking they are on the internal network?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
