So I need not open any port in the datacenter where exchange server is and I need to open outgoing port only in our office firewall where the BES server is residing. |
So by doing this the blackberry users can send and receive emails or its one way ?
As long as there isn't stopping BES <-> Exchange / SQL / AD communication and port 3101 to RIM; correct.
I am a bit confused here as to I just wanted to know how exactly the flow of email would be when blackbery is in place i.e. below scenario |
Datacenter firewall-> Spam filter appliance ->Exchange Server ->VPN Tunnel <->Office Firewall ->BES Express Server->Outgoing port 3101
How exactly will the blackberry device interact with RIM's network via the above setup to send and receive emails ?
See the document attached to this post for how message flow works with BES. All routing from BES to / from Exchange is done via MAPI.
