No.10 Accessing the EAC
Because the EAC is now a web-based management console, you’ll need to use the ECP virtual directory URL to access the console from your web browser. In most cases the EAC’s URL will look similar to the following:
- Internal URL:
https://<CASServerName>/ecpthe internal URL is used to access the EAC from within your organization’s firewall.
- External URL:
https://mail.contoso.com/ecpthe external URL is used to access the EAC from outside of your organization’s firewall. Some organizations may want to turn off external access to the EAC. For details, see Turn Off Access to the Exchange Admin Center.
