BES10, Activesync and OWA securely?
Posted on 2013-06-07
Help me brainstorm a solution to this one.
I have recently implemented a BES10 server to connect several Z10's. That part is working well. We also have several external users who use RSA tokens to access OWA. This requires port 443 to be forwarded into our single Exchange server. Prior to implementing the BES10 server, the ActiveSync feature was disabled on all accounts. Now, because BES10 talks to Exchange via ActiveSync and the feature needs to be turned on for the Z10 users, and because port 443 is directed to Exchange, we have only a single layer of credentials between the public network and the Z10 users on our Exchange server.
1. Change the port that ActiveSync uses on both the Exchange server as well as the BES10 server
2. Setup a 2nd exchange server to handle the ActiveSync role
May thanks (and points) to any helpers!
