Enable and configure the Remote Web Workplace

It is recommended that you use a firewall before connecting to the Internet and enabling the Remote Web Workplace. If you use a firewall, you must grant access to the Remote Web Workplace from the Internet.

Enabling the Remote Web Workplace

  1. Start the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard.
  2. On the Firewall page, ensure that Enable firewall is selected.
  3. On the Web Services Configuration page, select Remote Web Workplace.
    Important
    • You must also allow access to Outlook Web Access, Windows SharePoint Services, and the Monitoring Services Web site if you want users to access these services from the Remote Web Workplace.

Notes

  • To open the Configure E-mail and Internet Connection Wizard, click Start and then click Server Management. In the console tree, click Internet and E-mail. In the details pane, click Connect to the Internet.
  • If you have a firewall device on your network that does not support the UPnP framework, you must manually configure the firewall settings. For more information about how to configure the firewall device, see your device manufacturer's documentation. For more information about how the wizard configures firewalls that support the UPnP framework, see Using routers that support UPnP.
  • Users must type https:// to connect securely from their Web browser to the Web server. Connecting to the Remote Web Workplace from the Internet does not require users to create a virtual private network (VPN) connection.
