Yes, Active sync has to be enabled. installation manual on page 20 says:
For Microsoft Exchange, any of the following messaging servers:
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 (Microsoft ActiveSync enabled by default)
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 (Microsoft ActiveSync enabled by default)
There is no need to expose the ports used by active sync to the internet. Connectivity to the outside world is handled by the BES10 server through the Blackberry infrastructure.
