Publishing CRM SBE
via ISA 2004
So you followed my instructions and you have a functional CRMsbe installation, if not see the troubleshooting article before proceeding. So now you want to enable SSL so the transactions are more secure. Well you've come to the right place :>), but let me emphasize these instructions are for CRM 3.0 Small Business Edition with ISA 2004 only, and may only work if you did the integrated install (the first choice when installing). They have not been tested if you did the manual install (the second choice) as outlined on the Magical M&M's Site or you don't have ISA 2004.
I would like to send out a
very big Thank You
to Marcelo Sauaf of Brazil
who finally figured out how to get this to work without
Lets get the CRM 3.0 SBE website published.
First open up the ISA Console.
Give it a distinctive name
Set it to listen to the External network
Uncheck Enable HTTP
Now we need to select the correct certificate to use.
Once all the info is entered, click Next
We get the obligatory summary screen, if it looks right, click Finish
Now remember this is ISA 2004 Finish doesn't really mean
The wizard will restart the firewall service and show you it's progress
When it finishes, it will tell you the changes were applied.
Still in the ISA console, click the Tasks tab in the task
pane on the right.
Give your publishing rule a catchy name
We want to bridge to IIS not tunnel
Your new rule needs to Allow access
We only want to secure the traffic from the Internet, we do
not need to
We need to use our internal web server address here.
Now enter your public name, make
sure you have an "A" Record listed for
Next we tell it to use the Web Listener we created earlier
And the default of All Users is probably ok
We are presented with the summary screen, if it looks ok, click Finish
But wait we are not finished yet
Click Apply, you could skip this step and go on until you
Click on the To tab
Next click the Traffic tab
Now click the Bridging tab
Now we need to click that Apply button again to make our final changes stick
And hopefully we get the all ok from the wizard.
One more little thing I will remind you of, because it
tripped me up for over an hour on the second site I did.
If you are using IE 7 you will be prompted to close the window, say yes
And if all went well, you should be in the CRM window just like you were on the lan.
This is the process that worked for me to allow outside
access to the CRM Web Site on SBS 2003 with ISA 2004
