Microsoft did themselves a disservice by adding the Windows Firewall to the
server products.


You should not be using the Windows Firewall on a server.


You HAVE to get a full featured firewall to protect your network and

Hey Everyone,


I would like to lock down my Exchange server by activating the Windows
Firewall (Server 2003 Standard and Exchange 2003 Enterprise).  When I
activated the firewall, I thought I allowed all the proper exceptions but I
was not able to connect with Outlook.  I know that port selection is dynamic
in a lot of cases but does anyone know of any specific port I should be
allowing in order to successfully connect an Outlook client (from the inside
of the network, same subnet as the Exchange server)??  Any help anyone would
give would be great!
