The client does not open up anything. Also the Exchange RPC filter on
the ISA server  only responds to Outlook requests.

So if I installed ISA server and opened up this port, tnen my clients
would still need to open port 135 at their end right?  I very much doubt
if I could convince any clients to open up those ports at their end
through their firewalls, even to my dedicated IP addresses.  Also, I
seem to recall there are other companies offering these services that do
not require their clients to open up port 135 etc.

best regards
