I have recently installed another exchange 2000 server into a company's organization. This means they have two servers. They currently access the server via outlook web access whilst based at home using this URL http://mail.careconnect.org.au/exchange
. This works fine, and will access the exchange server cc-exchange (192.168.1.2)
My question is, how do I configure the exchange environment, so that users that have their mailboxes residing on the new exchange server cc-filesrv (192.168.1.7) can access it using OWA. I am in the process of running exmerge, in order to phase out the old exchange server, as the current Information store is corrupt. I am unable to move users onto the new server until OWA has been installed.
The organization is as follows. I have a PIX firewall in place with an external IP address of 126.96.36.199. After looking at the config I have noticed there are a couple of lines that need to be mentioned in this query.
access-list 120 permit tcp any any eq www
static (inside, outside) tcp 188.8.131.52 www 192.168.1.2 www netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
What this tells me is that OWA is allowed in using port 80 (www) to the exchange server 192.168.1.2
I have since added a couple of lines on my own. Not sure if it is correct, but I think it is.
access-list 120 permit tcp any any eq 82
static (inside, outside) tcp 184.108.40.206 82 192.168.1.2 www netmask 255.255.255.255 0 0
When I type in the URL http://mail.careconnect.org.au:82/exchange
, it cind of connects, so I think the networking part of it is correct. I am not sure if the above way is the best practice. Please feel free to comment
After entering that URL, the authentication dialog box comes up. (I assume this has something to do with IIS). This is where I am stuck. I am hopeless on IIS. But it will not accept the credentials. On top of all this, the page redirects to the older server (drops port 82) and asks for credentials.
Is there something I need to do on the new server with IIS? Please help, as I cannot migrate any users until the new server is accessible via OWA
