  • Is Edge Transport Filtering Email ?

    I have configured one Edge transport and Hub transport server. Both are synchronizing well.

    Edge Transport IP : 192.168.1.10 (Internal interface IP)
    210.1.2.3. (External Interface IP)

    Hub Transport : 192.168.1.11

    In this scenario, how can I check if Edge transport is filtering packets or not?

    When I access OWA from Internet by using address as https://210.1.2.3\exchange, page does not open.

    How shall I configure firewall or test myself, so that Edge transport filter the mail and then pass on to the Hub transport.

    You can't use OWA with Edge transport. It is ONLY for SMTP email, which is why it is close to useless.

    Running some perfmon counters will show you if the Edge transport server is actually filtering anything.

      But most of the users access their mailbox from OWA remotely. THen why Microsoft has introduced this feature if it only works with SMTP ?

        edge transport is used for message send\delivery SMTP gateway

        client access server is used for client access (OWA\Outlook),

        Google "Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Component Architecture" for a description of the various exchange server roles

          As posted here, means OWA is not supported with Edge Transport ?

            It's not that it isn't supported. It's that OWA isn't a feature of this component.

              OWA is authenticated traffic and is more secure for people connecting to it remotely. The Edge Transport role allows the SMTP traffic (not authenticated) to be filtered before emails make it through to internal servers. Your OWA traffic will tend to be forwarded to the relevant server via a Firewall rule, the same as you would send Port 25 traffic to the Edge Transport Role, so doesn't matter where OWA is supported.
