Exchange Outlook Anywhere and TMG Configurations RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm confused with the Exchange Server 2007 Outlook Anywhere Setup and MS TMG 2010.

    I have an environment with the following settings

    Single TMG 2010 Server

    - published rules for exchange Outlook Anywhere/ActiveSync/Outlook Web App to use an SSL listener.

    The SSL listener uses a SSL certificate  that has subject CN as "", with SAN names that include

    Single Exchange 2007 Server

    - outlook anywhere, basic authentication, and external host name set to ""

    Users access externally through site.

    My question is it doesn't matter if I set the external host name field of the outlook anywhere configuration to "" or "", they will both work. Shouldn't it work only for or just

    Thanks in advance

  • In your case, TMG does most of the work with clients, and it communicates with Exchange instead of clients. That's why it works with both names.
