Hi Experts,

I have a BES server and am wondering if it is possible to run BES using RPC over HTTPS?

I'm about to build another 2 servers to run hub/cas roles only and thought I'd put this question out there to be sure RIM havent come out with this method of connecting to the mailbos servers yet?

BES communicates with Exchange using MAPI calls and with the outside world using an outbound initiated bidirectional TCP connection on port 3101. The internal limitations on what BES can communicate with are based on the Active Directory forest level. Why would you want to use RPC over HTTP? That suggests using an external socket to connect to an internal server?

Currently, the CAS address is located on a load balanced set of TMG (ISA) servers. These are published RPC over HTTPS connections only. Unfortunately, I have a 2 server Exchange 2010 setup, where all 3 roles are installed on each and set up with DAGs.
