We don't administrate the firewall ourselves and our ISP (Arcor in this case) does not allow to open up certain ports because of security concerns.
Is there any workaround for a problem of this kind (eg connect to the Blackberry network via another proxyserver of firewall instead of the standard gateway of the server the software is installed on)?
We do have a server with ISA 2006 installed on it, I could open up the ports on this firewall. Problem is I can't change the standard gateway of the Exchange server, because then the server would not be reachable from another subnet in the companys network.
Any idea would be welcome.
If I understand this correctly, you have 2 internet connections?
One to the Exchange server filtered by the ISP's firewall and one filtered by yur own firewall?
If that's the case, load BESeither on it's own machine, or in a VM and point to to ISA as a gateway.
