2003 Exchange server.  I can't access OWA over https://.  Says the site can't be found.  I have the same firewall and isp as another client down the street and it works fine so I don't think the ISP is blocking anything.   I can access over https:// internally.  It warns about the certificate I created and I install it.  80 and 443 are forwarded to the server.  I connect successfully over http://.  I can telnet port 443 from the outside and connect to the server.  What am I missing?  It looks like the problem is in the firewall but I can telnet 443 and connect to http://mail.domain.com/exchange.

I believe you may have to create/assign a new certificate.

I don't think that's it.  I can connect with https:// on the inside.  I can telnet port 443 to the server from the outside, so it leads me to believe the forwarding is correct.

So when you type in https://xxx.domain.com do you get the security alert?

no.  It just says page not found.  I deleted and recreated the certificate anyway, to try, and it does the same thing.

Are you using ISA or some other firewall?  You may have to verify those rules are correct.

Double check your port forwarding.  If it works on the inside and doesn't work on the outside something is going on there.  Make sure you are forwarding 443 to the server.  When you telnet from the outside to 443 do you just get a black screen?

Yes.  Just a black screen.  It must be in the firewall. I am missing it though.  It looks right to me, but obviously it probably isn't.
