Specs: Windows 64
IM curious what people would classify front end vs backend servers in any given topology. I have exchange running and people are calling my access exchange server the front end server and my mailbox store as the backend. Can someone please help me understand this frontend/backend lingo, thanks

Front end is what is exposed to the internet. Back end is what is behind your firewall.

This should help explain it in the context of Exchange
