    I want to setup an exchange server behind a rv082. We also have 7 tunnels setup for our sites. I want the exchange server to be on the dmz. Has anyone done this and can I have some easy steps to follow. I am out of time and I want to do it just once.

    You want the exchange server visable from the internet or just from the other sites?

    I have an exchange server setup to run behind my WRT54G, I'll pull the setup information from that in a few minutes, once I recover from my recent blood donation.

    and my PSA for the day - Have you donated blood in the last 8 weeks? No? Time to give again! Save a life!

    I want it to be visible from the internet and from the tunnels. It will be in the corporate office. The sites will be pulling from it thru the tunnels.

    If you want it to be on the DMZ (completely exposed to the internet), that shouldn't be much more than establishing a static IP for the sever, then setting the DMZ IP to the same in the web interface.

    If you want to keep it behind the firewall and keep things tightened up, you could alternatively use a combination of four port range forwards to the IP of the exchange server.

    In order to enable complete access to the server you'll need to setup... at minimum for OWA, OMA, and RCP over HTTP:

    App ---- Start Range ---- End Range -----Protocol
    HTTP ---- 80 ---- 80 ---- Both (TCP/UDP)
    HTTPS ---- 443 ----- 443 ---- Both
    SMTP ---- 25 ----- 25 ----- Both
    RPC ---- 135 ---- 135 ---- Both

    Hope this gets you going in the right direction.

    I am running an SBS2003 behind a RV082 but setup should be the same. I would be hesitate to open RPC to the internet. Since Exchange 2003 supports RPC over HTTP(S), you should probably close RPC and configure that instead. For your other corporate offices, if they are tunnelled in, you shouldn't need to configure anything specifically for their connectivity to the Exchange......

    And putting your Exchange on a DMZ is a no-no in my books.... But your choice.....
