I agree with this.  This is a bad idea to open up this communication via the
internet.  A better solution would be to implement a VPN solution using PPTP
directly to the server or another RAS Server.  I'm not aware of any problems
running RAS on the Exchange box but I suppose it would depend on how the
Exch box is configured.  If the system has one network card and points
directly to the PIX as it's default gateway you should be fine.

Well, having some familiarity with the PIX, you'd have to open around 64000
ports up to access Exchange from the internet.  Unless you have hacked the
registry of the Exchange server to statically assign the ports that Exchange
uses for communications.

However, my question still stands...  If you have OWA and a VPN solution in
place, WHY are you trying to access the server off of the internet?
What purpose are you serving here?  I'm just trying to get an understanding
of what you're attempting to accomplish.

The pix has been in place around a year. I wasn't kidding when I said I was
going to email you and ask, so I wasn't being a smart A**.
