OWA on a different port - Exchange 2003 standard

Hi Guys,

I am trying to setup OWA on port 8080.

It works internally but not externally.

I have set the default web site to port 8080 and tested internally via http://serverip:8080/exchange and that all works fine. All 8080 traffic is forwarded to the exchange server.

I have opened up port 8080 on our sonicwall 1260 and this is ok ("telnet publicip 8080" - connects and does not report a failure). I have also setup port 8443 for ssl and tested as above.

When I try to connect, I get page cannot be displayed.

Any ideas? What have I missed?
