Configuring an SSL Profile with a Server Certificate

Aug 19, 2014

The HTTPS connection that encapsulates the MAPI connection is secured by SSL. As a result, RPC over HTTPS requires connectivity through TCP port 443. This port is assigned to HTTPS, which web-server administrators usually keep open in the firewall application. Using SSL-protected communication helps RPC over HTTPS to maintain the security of all communications.

To enable RPC over HTTPS acceleration, you must install a server certificate on the appliance. Using this server certificate, you can configure an SSL profile that RPC over HTTPS uses for secure communication. To configure an SSL profile with an Exchange server certificate, see Installing Server and Client Certificates.

Note: You must configure an SSL profile only on the datacenter-side appliance.
