Exchange 2003 and OWA
Posted on 2004-09-27
At a client, we have the following situation:
They have a Exchange server that is acting as the front end and back end server. The clients at the site can view their email via OWA by going to the 192.xxx.xx.xxx/exchange and logging in. They see their inboxes the way they’ve seen their Outlook 2003 app inboxes.
We configured the firewall to pass HTTPS traffic through to 192.xxx.xx.xxx. From the outside, when I hit their web address in HTTPS, I get directed to enter my username and password, which I do. I then get a page that says “Under Construction”
The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured.
Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.
This seems to be a something with the IIS server. What, I am sorry to say, I do not know. Please keep in mind that the web site on port 80 points to one server, the 443 address points to the exchange server.
What am I missing here? SSL certs are enabled, when I log in I get the little locked icon in the lower right hand corner, I get rejected with wrong authentication and I see that under Web extensions, Microsoft Exchange server is allowed on the Exchange server. I assume that I am not pointing to the correct web page somewhere in IIS.
Help is REALLY needed.
