RPC/HTTPs is the way to go then.  That gives them a full client experience
(pop won't) without the heavy VPN.  Uses SSL instead.

You can find some information about it at including what it is, how to
deploy it, etc.

Subject: [exchangelist] Viable option for connection to Exchange from

We have a network with exchange 2003 server.
We also currently have a Cisco VPN.
We are upgrading our Manufacturing system to a new software package that can
only run thru Terminal Services for outside people.
Because of that we are looking at getting rid of the VPN and just use
Terminal Services for people to work with the manufacturing software and
transfer files between the network and their own workstation off site.
These same people do have offices in house so there is times when they do
connect directly to the network at their desk.

My question is what options do I have with Outlook?  They have to have the
ability to sync their mail, folders and calendar which they can do currently
with the VPN but when we shut it down because of terminal services, then
what?  I hate to have to keep a vpn running just so people can sync their
outlook with the exchange server.

I know pop3 will not solve this and the web outlook does not really help
because they want the ability to work in outlook offline and they when they
get to a hotel or such, they want to connect and do a sync and d/l updates
and u/l what they have done.

Anyone have any ides???
