I have read Sybex study guide published in 2000 from cover to cover, and I haven't go through any OWA objectives did MS add that later?

how deep I should go through that?

any known source please, cause in MS web site I have found a lot of related articles, for now, I am searching for the Exam outlines only.

thanks

For OWA in 220, you pretty much have to understand where you would place OWA server (exposed to public, dmz or intranet); what protocols are used (80, 443); and what means of authentication are used. I had not a clue about Exchange or OWA when I took 220, so you probably don't have to dig too deep. Just think of it in terms of securing a web server that needs to be accessed from the internet.

Most likely the questions fall within the scopes of authentication and Internet access.

A general understanding of OWA's requirements probably will be sufficient (placement, IIS, ASP and authentication methods).

Have you taking the test yet? Did it have any of the OWA material? I read MS objectives and did not see it either but understand what Jeff had to say about secure the OWA or Exchange server based on it funcitons.

I am going to take 220 on Monday!

Well I feel ready so now to relax and wait till AM. Let ya all know the results then.

I still wonder on the OWA stuff? Kinda of think it can be only design related on how the OWA is protected or connected and not on how OWA works so to speak, but I know tomorrow.

Any OWA questions are just ports, protocols, authentication and placement. Typically, OWA server would be in the DMZ, port 443 (SSL) and maybe 80 (HTTP) coming from the public side, Windows Integrated, Certificate or maybe basic authentication. Port 80 (HTTP) coming from OWA to email servers on the private network, along with 3268 (LDAP SSL) and maybe 389 (LDAP). Obviously you need port 25 (SMTP) coming in from public all the way to email servers on the private network. I don't even recall that it went into that much detail for 220, just placement in the DMZ and what type authentication.

Do know your ports and protocols and authentication methods. The exam is pretty much based on who is connecting to what, where. How you will authenticate, encrypt, authorize and audit.

Congrats on your MCSE 2000!

Make sure to go over the exam objectives for 214. Not a bad exam, just a few new items covered over the material you already have digested. Good luck.
