The Forefront Online Protection for Exchange Gateway (FOPE Gateway) can be installed during the initial Forefront Protection 2010 for Exchange Server installation by following the install wizard when asked if you would like to install the FOPE Gateway.
If you do not install the FOPE Gateway during the FPE install, you can install it manually at a later time. The FOPE Gateway can be installed on a server where FPE is installed and running or it may be installed on a separate server.
On the server where you would like to install the FOPE Gateway, either download the Forefrontonline_setup.exe from the Microsoft Download Site and run it by double clicking the file or insert the DVD into the server CD/DVD drive and run Forefrontonline_setup.exe by double clicking the file.
Follow the steps in the install wizard.
|The program install folder and data folder should not be created in the same location.|
After you have installed the FOPE Gateway, you will need to enable the gateway by selecting the Enable Forefront Online Protection for Exchange Gateway Management check box and entering the server name and credentials in the Forefront Online Protection for Exchange Gateway Management area of the Online Protection – Configure pane of the FPE Administrator Console. This will ensure that FPE can communicate with the gateway.
