You need to invest in a real firewall like ISA server that way you do
what you are asking without worrying about port 80 being signed to one

I currently run a web server on a separate box and Exchange on another
which my users can access their web sites and emails from, both are
running on port 80, however my ISA server knows what is coming in for
web and what is coming in for OWA and thus points the connections to the
right server. 

Using your everyday Linksys type router will not work for you. If you
can't afford to invest in a proper firewall then I suggest you run your
web sites from your Exchange Server and dump the Apache box.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange with SSL - OWA Access

Hello all,

I have a peculiar problem. I have two win2k3 Enterprise on my network. 
Apache webserver is sitting on one, and Exchange 2003 Enterprise is
on the other.

The Apache Server came first and so the router has been used to map Port
to the Apache Server. Now with Exchange installed, the question are two 

1. Exchange was installed and Microsoft Certificate Authority was
and used. So SSL is on. Based on this, if the users are willing, can
access OWA through HTTPS and not bother with HTTP since Port 80 is in
use by 
the Apache Server. That way, the router can open Port 25, 110, and 443
the Exchnage server? The main way of connecting to this server is mostly

through OWA.

2. I have forgotten whose address I put in Forwarders in my DNS entry
that be my WAN IP?), and whether I need to include MX record in my
lookup zone.

Thank you all in advance.
