Beat to Death by OWA

I am trying to publish Outlook Web Access ( OWA ) from behind a ISA 2004 Sever.

I am beat.  I have tried everything.  There seems to be tons of information on the Internet about setting OWA up, but little about any of the problems I am having…so, I guess it is something extremely easy, and I am just not seeing it.

I have an ISA 2004 Server running on Windows Server 2003.  This server has one external network card, and one internal network card.  The IP address of the internal card is 192.168.1.16.  The name of this machine is Earth.

The Exchange Server 2003 runs on Windows Server 2003.  This machine has one network card.  The IP address of this network card is 192.168.1.14 and 192.168.1.11.  The name of this machine is Venus2.

I have published the website running on IP address 192.168.1.11 through the ISA machine, and it seems to work fine.   People out on the Internet can type www.site.com and can see our website.

However, nothing I do, allows me to publish OWA through the ISA Server.

From a computer on the internal network, I can type “venus2\exchange” and go directly to OWA, or I can type “192.168.1.14\exchange”, enter my password and go to OWA, but as I have said from outside the ISA Server, there is nothing I can do to get to it.  

As for what have I tried so far, the answer is “Everything”.  I have followed every set of instructions on the Internet, I have tried every possible fix on the Internet, and I have randomly tried anything and everything just hoping to luck into some solution…all for nothing.

My hope is that I can get to a point where the users on the Internet would type “http:\\www.site.com” to get to our website, and “https:\\www.site.com\exchange” to get to our OWA.

Does anyone have any ideas on where I would start?  I have been at this for 4 days, and I am getting a little punch drunk.

Hi,

did you open all the correct ports? 443

The answer turned out to be that the listener on the ISA server was setup for both port 80 and 443.

I took 443 off of the listener, and created a seperate listener just for OWA on 443.

Seems to work now.
