Default Authentication Settings Exchange 2007/2010 IIS Application & Virtual Directories!!

Im getting alot of questions around the default authentication setting for the exchange virtual directories – So I though I would dig this out as a handy reference;

You can find these settings in IIS7. Select each Virtual Directory and then IIS section –> Authentication. Listed are the virtual directories that are enabled by default with a clean install of Exchange 2007/Exchange 2010

Note these settings are from Exchange 2007 Standard SP2 Installation, but should be the correct settings for Exchange 2010


SSL Settings:

All the Virtual directories are set to Require SSL with 128bit except for OAB that DOES NOT require SSL and RpcWithCert which DOES NOT require 128bit (it DOES require SSL though).

    Thank you John..    

    I have found several sites that say "Check your IIS Authentication Settings" or something to that effect, but none showed me what they should be.   I followed these settings and this corrected my problems.    

    Thank you for taking the time to share..

    Fixed all the issues I was having, great information.

    I have a feeling these settings are not set this way during the install or something,
