I have 2 CAS server, the internet facing CAS iPones are able to sync with Exchange but the non-internet facing Exchange are erroring with "Error: [System.Net.WebException]: The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden." when I run test-activesyncconnectivity.  The policy for activesync is set to "allow non-provisionable devices".  This started after I ran the digicert  tool to point the activesync to my external domain name. This is the current setting:

[PS] C:\>get-activesyncvirtualdirectory -server exchserver | fl internalurl,externalurl

InternalUrl : https://email.externaldomain.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
ExternalUrl :
Anyone have any ideas on how to fix?

Why you need non internet facing server to work with Iphone...everyone should come from internet facing server...

[PS] C:\>get-activesyncvirtualdirectory -server exchserver | fl internalurl,externalurl

InternalUrl : https://exch-non-internetfacing.internal.lan/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
ExternalUrl :

First you need to publish the public name. Say if you want to use.

oma.yourdomain.com then you need to get this register on to public domain. Next you need to add this name into you SAN certificate.

Next you need either TMG or ISA to do the reverse proxy to your internet facing CAS server. Also you need to apply cert in TMG or ISA also.

Then you need configure active setting in your CAS server with basic authentication. Leaver server internal url as it is. That is correct. External URL leave blank. For more read Proxy and Redirection in Exchange 2010.
