Provide Access to a Public Folder
When you create a new HTTP virtual server, you must provide access to a public folder or public folder tree to configure the server's root. In order to provide access to other public folders or public folder trees, virtual servers can have more than one root. To provide access to content not contained within the public folder or public folder tree you specify as the root, you must create additional virtual directories.
Important Before you can view the contents of the folder to which you are providing access, you must start the virtual server's Web site. If you are publishing files in the default Exchange virtual server, you must start the virtual server's Web site in IIS. If you are publishing files from an Exchange HTTP virtual server, you must start the server in System Manager.
To provide access to a public folder:
Tip The public folder is accessed through a URL that contains the path shown in Exchange Path.
For example, http://virtualserver/public, where virtualserver is the local or DNS name of the virtual server.
