How to Configure a Server as an RPC Proxy Server
Topic Last Modified: 2005-06-02
This topic explains how to configure a server as an RPC proxy server. Specifically, the procedure in this topic describes how to install the Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 RPC over HTTP proxy networking component on your server Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.
Typically, you will configure an Exchange front-end server as an RPC proxy server. However, if you do not have a front-end server in your organization, you can configure a back-end server as an RPC proxy server.
To perform the procedure in this topic, confirm that the Exchange server you are configuring as an RPC proxy server is running Windows Server 2003 or a later version.
On the Exchange server that will be the RPC proxy server, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
In Add or Remove Programs, in the left pane, click Add/Remove Windows Components.
In the Windows Components Wizard, on the Windows Components page, select Networking Services, and then click Details.
In Networking Services, select the RPC over HTTP Proxy check box, and then click OK.
On the Windows Components page, click Next to install the RPC over HTTP Proxy Windows component.
If you are positioning your RPC proxy server inside your perimeter network, you must open the specified ports on the internal firewall for RPC over HTTP in addition to the standard ports for Exchange front-end communication.
