Summary

Windows Essential Business Server 2008 Feature Pack 1 introduces the following new features:
  • A security slider for Forefront Threat Management Gateway.
  • An updated set of instructions for the "Configure DNS for Remote Access" task.

    Note The "Configure DNS for Remote Access" task is one of the tasks on the "Configuration and Migration Tasks" checklist. For more information, visit the following Microsoft TechNet Web site:

By default, Windows Essential Business Server 2008 Feature Pack 1 may enforce more restrictive security settings than the existing security settings in the Forefront Threat Management Gateway. The security slider lets you adjust the level of security settings in the Forefront Threat Management Gateway. This feature has the following benefits:
  • You can easily adjust the security settings to the appropriate security level for the network.
  • You can quickly adjust the security settings to diagnose an issue that blocks Internet access for one or more applications.
This feature pack updates the instructions on the "Configure DNS for Remote Access" task. After you install this feature pack, you are provided with the instructions to enable the Autodiscover feature in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

Note By using the Autodiscover feature, you can more easily connect mobile devices and computers to Exchange Server 2007.
