Exchange Front End OWA server Help

Hi

I've installed a front end exchange server for OWA access. All went well, its installed as a second exchange server in the organisation. I specified it should be a front end server.

I've pretty much followed the instructions from an article on msexchang.org. I havn't moved the server to the DMZ yet so it's sitting in my internal network.

Problem is I can't access OWA on the front end server. I go to http://server/exchange and I'm asked for my login details. I put them in then get a page not found.

In event viewer I have W3SVC errors:

The server was unable to add the virtual root '/Exadmin' for the directory '\\.\BackOfficeStorage' due to the following error: The system cannot find the path specified.  The data is the error code.

Am I supposed to specify a path? The instructions on msexchange.org didn't say anything about this.

I should mention, the Backend server is exchange 2003 running on Server 2003.
The front end server is exchange 2003 running on Server 2000

Not sure if this effects anything?

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks

In IIS, click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Services Manager.
Expand ServerName, right-click Default Web Site, and then click Properties.
On the Directory Security tab, click Edit under Secure Communications.
Verify that the Require Secure Channel (SSL) check box is not selected, click OK, and then OK again.
