Hello - I'm having some problems getting Outlook Web Access to work on machines outside of our internal network.
The server is running SBS2K, and Exchange Server works fine. I set up OWA using SSL (from our internal certifcate authority) and it works fine for all machines internally.
I understand that our firewall has to be configured to let the requests through - so on the routers Virtual Server i have set up the forwarding address for TCP port 443 to port 443 on the Exchange server.
However, if i use the internal i.p. address of the firewall router in a web browser (192.168.0.254) and then type /exchange:
I get a Cannot Find Server error page. Obviously this is the same if i use the external IP address of the router.
If i type the server IP directly:
then it works...
I have checked that the router is forwarding correctly (using hyperterminal) and port 443 shows as open using a port scan on the external IP address.
Just to check whether it was a problem with SSL - i took away the need for authentication, then port forwarded to port 80 and the same problem occurs.
Also if you type in https://192.168.0.253:443
it takes you to the default web page in IIS. However if you type in https://192.168.0.254:443
then again, it cannot find the page.
I know i'm rambling...but can anybody help?
