  • Cannot change OWA 2003 password. Please help

    Hello guru,
    Can someone please help me how to elimnate https (SSL), when enable Iisadmpwd? I followed Petril url --> http://www.petri.com/enable_password...hange_2003.htm to enable changing password over OWA 2003. I am good student and have followed exactly what the teacher directed. Now i can see "Change Password" after logon to OWA\Optioins. When I click on it, the link pop up with HTTPS (SSL), which I don't have any cert installed. Is there a way to modify file so I don't have to spend another $99 USD for a SSL cert? I want to accomplish by not using Cert since economy is bad, budget constraint project.

    Thank you for your help,
    DYKIRIN

      Hi V-2Nas,
      I tried not to use SSL since the connection is not too fast. So, it will not work without SSL at all?

        Hey buddy,

        i don't think so it will work without ssl however i haven't tried. I will try and let you know if it works without ssl however when you use owa outside the network means internet. It always have a certificate on it.
        Thanks & Regards

          StartCom SSL certificates are close to useless, as they aren't trusted.
          You don't need to spend $99 for a trusted certificate - US$30 is the cheapest I know of. http://CertificatesForExchange.com/

          Without doing it on SSL you have no security. So anyone sniffing your traffic has both the old and the new password. SSL also has no impact on the performance of the connection - so that argument is not really valid.

          However, as stated in this KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297121 - SSL is required to use it in OWA.

            I can use without SSL now, but the feature of changing password is what i'm stuck because it kept pointing to https instead of http.
