HTTP Basic: Is there any pre-authentication with pass-thru? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are planning to replace Forefront Unified Access Gateway with WAP for publishing Exchange services.

    With regard to ActiveSync and OutlookAnywhere, which have to be published using HTTP Basic, I is not clear to me if the WAP does some sort of pre-authentication between steps 2 and 5 described in Publish an Application that uses HTTP Basic, i.e., authenticates the username/password against the AD before redirecting the client to the internal Exchange server? 

    Is it just me or does the terminology of "app" in the article above get mixed up?

    Thank you
