Exchange 2000 front-end and PIX 7.0

Dear friends,

I'm trying to deploy a solution of webmail using MS Exchange 2000 (front-end and back-end servers). However, I could not install MS EXCH on front-end server (located in DMZ) because it's not reaching the domain controller on INSIDE.

I read all MS documentation about installing this type of program, but it didn't solve my problem.

What must I have to put on PIX settings to permit my Front-end server to reach the DC on the inside network?

I appreciate your help.

P.S: My PIX is 515E and using 7.0 version

Hello :

This articles on subject should serve as a guide.

They are from a previous version but the configuration is practically the same.

Post some more info on your particular project, ip addresess, actual pix configuration. product/iaabu/pix/pix_62/config/msexchng.pdf

Hope this helps ...

I appreciate your help. However, the documents you were referencing suppose that I already istalled MS Exchange. I didn't do it yet. I need a help exactly on this point, that is, how to install Exchange in front-end configuration if PIX is between it and the Back-end Exchange server. I guess there is something like a script. Do you have some other reference?

I am sorry I can not help you with that script you mention to install Exchange service.

I believe that particular issue is out of the scope of this forum.

Have a great day !

I appreciate your help but, in fact, I already solved my problem. It was related to an Exchange configuration involving Active Directory sites. I put the Exchange front-end server inside the correct AD site and everything was ok.

By the way, if you can, please, send the document to this address:

Thank you.
