According to this KB article : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/817379 You have to disable "Require SSL" for active sync to work.
Thats fine, I did that. It works now. But I have a few questions..
on my iPhone, the SSL box is still checked. I have to wonder if my communications are encrypted or not. I'll sniff them a bit later today to see.
perhaps I'm mis understanding the KB article, and what actually got turned off is the communication between IIS and the Exchange backend.. I'm just a linux guy, what do i know? :)
Anyways, I need the data to be encrypted so I'm looking for clarity/explanations.
Could I just throw a reverse proxy in front of this and let it do the ssl?
