Setting up Exchange ActiveSync
Does anyone have any helpfull guides on how to set ActiveSync up from scratch. So that mobile users may connect to the server through ISA using their mobile phones that have this feature.

Really easy with ISA once you have the underpinnings setup, more of a hassle with 2007 though but once your exchange side is setup its pretty much just adding a certificate and following a wizard.

Thanks for those links but they seem to be a bit confusing for me. We publish OWA already over the internet, would I have to add a new certificate for ActiveSync? I am not sure how it should be set up in Exchange first, then IIS & finally ISA.

If exchange already works with SSL (https) in your current setup you will probably only need to rerun the publish exchange wizzard in ISA 2004/2006 and select the appropriate checkboxes to allow Activesync, it may have been enabled by default previously anyway. If you have ISA 2000 then you'll need to dust off some history books or see you licensing provider for an upgrade

We dont use SSL for OWA, and I have set up another publishing rule for activesync on ISA2006. But still not working, I cant seem to get my head around why.
I will go through what I have done hopefully someone can point out a fault
Set up a DNS record for mobile.myschool.net
gone into isa set up a publishing rule for exchange 2007, set up non SSL security, internal site name is our exchange server, accept request for mobile.myschool.net then chosen external as the listener and allowed all users.
In exchange I go into the activesync tab and on internal URL I changed it from HTTPS to HTTP://exchangeserver/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync

nevermind, in trying to get remote access to my isa server from home I restarted the ISA server and now it works.

Hi guys, I am having the same problem when I try to get the iphone to synch with exchange 2007 to get emails externally. OWA works fine from PCs but not the iphone or a blackberry. We're running ISA 2000 and exchange 2007. Blackberry used to work fine with exchange 2003 but since the upgrade to exchange 2007 it stopped and can't get iphone to work correctly. I am having to forward users’ email instead of connecting the mobiles to mail accounts.
I was told that ISA 2000 doesn't fully support Exchange 2007 that's where the problem lies, is it true?
I hope you can help with this- Your help is appreciated.

Are you using SSL? If you not remember to configure an Iphone how it should be but the option to turn of SSL is only available once you have saved all the settings.

i have set up the rule for active sync on my isa server, but this is behind out LEA's firewall, does any one know what ports need to be opened to it? or does it use the normal 80/443?
22nd February 2010, 03:28 PM #11
I thought Activesync required SSL?

im not sure, we have outlook web access running over http and the only other port open on our lea's firewall is 443, but i am unsure if that will work, just thought i would ask as i cant test atm as i broke my phone and my boss has walked off with his!

In Exchange 2003 SSL was required for Activesync and I'm sure it's the same in 2007.

i just checked out exchange box (which works fine internally with activesync) and ssl enabled is set to false, so it might work on port 80. will have to wait untill the boss reappears!

its working over both, just via 443 you need to accept the cert error from our exchange server.
