Need to Secure my internet facing CAS server

hi,

We have an exchange 2010 architecture that contains a site A and a site B. Site A is internet facing behind a firewall and we need to secure the CAS server from an IIS perspective because the default IIs page is showing when you try and access the site without the /owa at the end.
Could anyone please assist with this process

Not sure this is really a question of "securing" the IIS server.  Either you're allowing traffic on TCP 80/443, or not.  If you're running OWA on this box, you are.  If you're not running any other custom content on the IIS server, then it will be as secure as OWA can be - so long as you keep your updates current.

From a security perspective, don't run additional sites (especially apps) on the OWA server.  Don't install custom web components, either - just run what Exchange installed to support OWA.

As for the default IIS page, you might write a page that redirects incoming traffic to /owa - preferably using https.  You need only put actual content on the default web root to make the default IIS page go away.

Example default.aspx:
<%@ Page Language="C#" %> 
<script runat="server"> 
  protected override void OnLoad(EventArgs e) 
  { 
      Response.Redirect("https://[YourServerName.somewhere.com/owa"); 
      base.OnLoad(e); 
  } 
</script> 

Open in new window


Or default.html:
<head>
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=https://[YourServerName.somewhere.com/owa"> 
</head>

Open in new window


Hope that helps!
