Exch2k3 OWA.  When locally using OWA, users can change pword but external OWA change pword "page cannot be displayed."

Anyone know why this would be?  Is this the nature of the change pword option in OWA?  Do external users need to vpn in to change pwords?  

This is the error:
"Error Code: 403 Forbidden. The server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator. (12202) " 

We are using http(s) and a public cert.   Thx.

Are you saying that users must be VPN'd in to do this?  Thanks.

No, you do not.

What is the router/firewalls that the user is passing through to get to the OWA from the Internet?

Just a regular comcast dummy router.  I can do it locally but it won't let me do it externally..

Are you sure that is all? I was expecting to see ISA server in your list.

The 12202 message comes from ISA.

The rule you are using to publish OWA needs to have a path to the /IISADMPWD/* as well as to the /exchange/*, /exchweb/* etc
