Configuring Remote Web WorkPlace

I just tried installing remote web workplace and failed. Is there another setup that prepares IIS to work with RWW or do I have to configure it manully?

Can someone point me in the right direction for installing RWW from begin to end.

I don't have 2 nics installed on my machine because I have a harware firewall instead. When it asked for my dns info, I went to my router and grabbed whatever my isp was giving me (omething like ( and 36) from there. It also asked me for my router IP, this is a local ip that I gave it in order to access it from within the network.

anyway just trying to give you some history on the network.......

Remote Web Workplace is generally not something you have to install... it's part of the integrated Small Business Server 2003 installation and configuration.

So, have you just tried to access it from WITHIN your LAN at http://servername/remote?  To access it from the outside you need to open port 4125 on your router and point that to your srever's internal IP address.

If it's not working, please post an IPCONFIG /ALL from your server so we can see what all you have going on there.

As for the Beginning to End installation... this is the one for SBS as a whole:  http://sbsurl.com/start

Got It working thanks, I did end up running IIS over and exchange again b/c the installs did not complete before.
I started up another post with another questions in regards to me getting it working but I cannot access OWA from within RWW.

I could access it via http://FQDN/Exchange

thanks again
