Cannot access SBS website via the Internet!
Posted on 2006-03-25
Whenever I try to connect to my SBS via the Internet, I receive the following error message:
You are not authorized to view this page
The Web server you are attempting to reach has a list of IP addresses that are not allowed to access the Web site, and the IP address of your browsing computer is on this list.
Please try the following:
* Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.

* Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 403.

My port forwarding on my router is obviously setup correctly, otherwise I wouldn't be getting this far. I'm having the same problem via HTTPS too.
By the way, is the SBS evaluation build any different from the full version? It's just my brother who also runs SBS for his business has the full version and has never had this problem!
