  • exchange 2003 owa

    I have a few questions:

    I have exchange 2003 installed in my LAN
    Iím using Checkpoint FW

    I want to use the OWA 2003

    what is the best way to do that :

    1. install ISA server and publish the OWA in the DMZ
    2. install another exchange in the DMZ - if so do I need to buy another license for the exchange?
    3. just open port 443 in the CPFW

    any other suggestions will be appreciated

    Microsoft would recommend option 2 and yes you need another license. Set it up as a front end server and put it on the dmz.

      yup, microsoft recommends option 2. In any case, Front-end setup is the way to go.

      Unfortunately that's $700 for exchagne and possibly another $700 for Server 2003

      Does anyone know if the back-end server is Exchange 2003 enterprise can the front-end server be regular exchange 2003 standard?

      Since the front-end server has no database I would assume so, but I wanted to confirm before we splurge $1400 on the front-end setup (the only reason why we have enterprise is the 16GB limit, we exceeded it a while ago).

        Yes, Exchange Server 2003 Std. edition can act as a Front-End server, unlike Exchange 2000 where you needed the Ent. edition.
