I have Exchange 2000 running on a Windows 2K server at my office. The router for the intranet at my office has a port opened that allows off-site access to my Exchange Mailbox through a Web browser. I am able to access my Exchange Mailbox from home on my Windows 98 machine by typing in the I.P. address (assigned by my ISP) for my Exchange Server (I guess that's what the IP represents) - "http://xx.###.###.###/exchange
" Then, I get prompted for my Exchange Mailbox u/n and p/w.
I have a new notebook running Windows XP Pro (SP2) at home with Norton Internet Security 2005. Norton Internet Security 2005 includes a component for: Security; Personal Firewall; Intrustion Detection; Norton Antivirus; Norton Antispam; Privacy Control; and Parental Control. If I highlight the "Security" button at the top of the Norton Internet Security main window, the statuses for Personal Firewall, Intrusion Detection, Privacy Control, and Parental Control will each change to Disabled. When I do this, I can access my Exchange Mailbox at my office by the same method that I described above. When I click on the button that says Turn On in the main window of Norton Internet Security, I cannot access my Exchange Mailbox. (I still get prompted for my user name and password to access my Mailbox. However, I get the old message: The page cannot be displayed. The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.)
I tried turning off each of the component of Norton Internet Security that appear as "Disabled" when Norton Internet Security is turned off. However, when I want to select one of the components (i.e., personal firewall or one of the others that I mentioned above), the status doesn't list as "Disabled", but it lists as "Off" (FYI). I went through the procedure of turning off each component one at a time, but I still get the "page cannot be displayed" message when I try to access my Exchange Mailbox - almost as if the "disabling" that occurs for the components I listed above when I turn of "Security" is different than when I "turn off" an individual component.
Does anybody have an idea as to how I can configure Norton Internet Security 2005 to let me access my Exchange Mailbox with a Web browser through Microsoft Web Access?
Symantec's knowledgebase for this product is quite limited, as it's sold as a "home" product, and not an enterprise product. I called to ask a tech support rep with Symantec, but the two guys with whom I spoke couldn't even grasp the concept of MS Outlook Web Access to an Exchange Mailbox.
I really would appreciate any help I can get with this. This is very frustrating.
I'm going to post this
