Notes

  • For more information about Web listeners, see Web listener overview.
  • When publishing over SSL, an SSL server certificate that was issued to the host name of the published Web site must be installed in the Personal store for the local computer on the Forefront TMG computer. For more information about obtaining and installing an SSL server certificate, see Configuring server certificates for secure Web publishing.
  • On the Web Listener IP Addresses page of the New Web Listener Wizard, you can also select Default IP addresses for network adapters on this network. If Network Load Balancing is enabled, this option will automatically select the virtual IP address. Otherwise, the default IP address will be automatically selected for each network adapter.
  • If you use RADIUS credentials validation, the Forefront TMG computer must be registered as a RADIUS client on the RADIUS server, and the RADIUS system policy rule must be enabled to allow RADIUS traffic from the Forefront TMG computer (Local Host network) to the Internal network. This rule assumes that the RADIUS server is located in the Internal network.
  • If you select RADIUS, LDAP, or RADIUS OTP credentials validation, you must edit the properties of the Web listener that you create to specify the RADIUS or LDAP servers that will be queried for authentication.
  • Outlook Mobile Access is supported only by Exchange Server 2003. For Exchange Server 2007, you must configure Exchange ActiveSync.
  • Any Web-enabled mobile device can use Outlook Mobile Access.
  • Forefront TMG uses the User-Agent header in a client request to determine the HTML form that will be used in the response returned to the Web browser. The supported types of forms are HTML 4.01, XHTML-MP, and cHTML. When the User-Agent header in the request is not mapped to a format, Forefront TMG falls back to Basic authentication.
  • Users connect with Outlook Mobile Access by opening a URL that typically has the form https://host_name/oma. You may need to modify the mappings between the paths specified by users and the internal paths on the Paths tab of your Web publishing rule's properties.
  • If you select Kerberos constrained delegation, you must perform additional procedures. For more information about Kerberos constrained delegation, see About Kerberos constrained delegation.
  • For more information about other settings in Web publishing rules, see Overview of Web publishing concepts.
