I was wondering what people's experience have been with the forms based administration, and compression on a front end OWA server.. I enabled it off the bat, and set the compression to 'high'. Then 'low'. I just turned it off and it seems to be a bit more robust. (I am on the LAN, though). Is forms based authentication necessary, when you have an SSL cert applied to the 'Default Web Site' in IIS 6 ? My experience has been that it takes like a full minute for the initial page to load on OWA (remotely). The Basic interface was just about as long, as far as I can tell... -Jason The HealthCare Chaplaincy is a multifaith community of professionals from many cultures dedicated to caring for persons in spirit, mind, and body.
