How to Configure Authentication on a Front-End Server

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-26

You can configure your front-end server for dual authentication or for pass-through authentication. In dual authentication, both front-end and back-end servers are configured to authenticate users. If you have a locked-down perimeter network in which RPCs are not allowed across the intranet firewall, and it is impossible for the front-end server to authenticate users, you can use pass-through authentication.

To successfully complete the procedures in this topic, confirm the following:

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.

  2. Go to the "Exchange" or "Public" virtual directory.

  3. Right-click the "Exchange" or "Public" virtual directory and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Access tab, and then click Authentication.

  5. Do one of the following:

    • To configure the front-end server to authenticate users (as in dual authentication), select the Basic authentication check box.
    • To configure pass-through authentication, select the Anonymous access check box, and then clear the Basic authentication check box.
