We have SBS 2003 and OWA and Remote Workpalce working perfectly. One day our DSL provider decided to disconnect us for no reason.  While they were sorting out issues we setup a dialup account with our ISP which meant our public ip address changed, we ran on dialup for about a day and half until the dsl was back up and running. We got our original ip address back and everything is working fine except OWA and remote workplace, page won't load. I haven't spent a lot of time on it because I'm stumped as to where to look.

If I do it internally either using http://servername/exchange/ or ip address I just get a listing of folders corresponding ut user names. I'm not prompted to login.
