Exchange 2003 Front-end Server and OWA

I have a single AD domain with 3 sites and a single post office. I set up a fourth exchange server at the primary site and set it as a AFront-end server. When I try to access OWA I get page not found. I can successfully access OWa directly from the back-end servers. I have installed SP1 for W2K3 Server and SP2 for Exchange. Mail works fine internally. Insight into this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ed Nemes

so, you cannot access OWA from the outside/external/internet?
what type of firewall are you running?

I am just trying to access it internally to test that it works. I have ISA 2K4 with SP2 installed. I had OWA successfully running with SSL to the primary server. However in that configuration,  I discovered that users in the 2 remote sites were unable to access their mailboxes. I did some research on microsoft technet and found that a FE was needed to facilitate access. I removed security on the primary server and disabled the OWA publishing rule. I then set-up the FE server and dismounted the stores. When I attempted to access OWA internally. I got the page not found error. System manager shows that the server is a member of the first admin group under Post Office. I am not sure why it does not work. I have not enabled SSL on the FE yet. The Error is "HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.
Internet Information Services (IIS)"

Thanks,
Ed

I did. The ASP is set to Allowed already.

Ok,

I managed to correct the issue with OWA loading on the FE server. I had to clear the Anonymous login checkboxes. Apparrently that allows for pass-through authentication which I do not want. I now get a prompt to login. I am able to successfully login, however the page loads incorrectly.
