The TechArena link is probably the way to go, then.

Single Exchange server, or front-end/back-end setup?  Dedicated Exchange, or SBS integrated?  Dedicated public IP either on or pointed to (via NAT) the Exchange server, or are you sharing a single public IP via inbound PAT to more than one private IP on different servers?

Generally speaking - what's not covered in the guides above - is the need to forward or allow ports 443 (and maybe 80, depending on your config) in to your Exchange server through your firewall.

Let me know if you've got specific questions after looking over the guides provided.  They're pretty thouough on the Exchange server side.

Hope that helps!

PS - iPads/iPhones - same diff.  All that stuff uses Server ActiveSync.  Those are the "magic words" you're looking for.  ;-)
