Creating HTTP Virtual Servers


Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24

You must use Exchange System Manager, not Internet Services Manager when you create virtual servers. When you create virtual servers in Exchange System Manager, you do not need to simplify the URL; after you create a virtual server that points to mailboxes and set the host headers, users can type http://<virtual server name>/ without having to type /exchange.

For detailed instructions about how to create an HTTP virtual server, see How to Create a Virtual Server.

You can leave the IP address field at All unassigned (the default) or restrict it to the particular IP address assigned to the server. If you know SSL will be used to connect to this front-end server, you may want to configure a specific IP address for the virtual server.
