    Exchange 2007/OWA - Authentication question

    Hi guys,

    Internally, staff use OWA to access email. I am using integrated authentication so once they have logged onto the network, they do not need to retype their credentials when opening OWA.

    I am also about to set up OWA for external access, but my testing has shown (obviously) that I have to type the FQDN and user details to access OWA (via standard login box, not OWA). This is obviously unacceptable.

    My query is this, is there a way I can have integrated when internal, and forms based when external?

    Thaanks in advance...

    Ben

    I believe so. How I don't know.

    Perhaps two sites, internal and external? Or enable annoymous access?

    Thanks matt40k,

    I am trying the following command and using iisreset /noforce after running but external access still asking for FQDN... internal access to OWA fine and logging in automatically using inegrated auth.

    set-owavirtualdirectory "owa (default web site)" externalauthentificationmethods fba

    I am assuming it is fba for forms based... can't seem to find full paramaters

    You do indeed need two sites in IIS, one with integrated authentication switched on and one with just anonymous access. Not being at work though I can't tell you exactly what to do, but for us I think it Just Worked (tm).

    Ok, on closer investigation, you do need a second IIS site but don't create it using the IIS console. Use the Exchange shell and the New-OwaVirtualDirectory command.
