Do you have the ports for the CRL on the MS Certificate Server ?  Your
clients are probably trying to access the Certificate Revocation
List(CRL) on your Certificate Server. Eventually this will timeout and
the connection will be made. Check your firewall logs for attempted
connections to your Certsrv on port 389 and port 80. Normally there are
two published CRLs one LDAP and one HTTP.

Subject: [exchangelist] HTTPS OWA horribly slow through firewall

We recently installed MS Certificate server on one of our machines and
regenerated the cert that OWA was using so its from MS Cert Server
instead of the previous cert which was from Novell Cert Server.  Since
that time OWA is so horribly slow when accessed through the firewall,
which it wasn't using the Novell Cert.   Internally its normal speed,
but externally it can take 3 minutes before the login screen even shows

Any ideas?
