G'day mate

Does the web server offer SSL?

If not easy way is forward port 80 to the Webserver interal Private IP address and force OWA users to use SSL/443 and forward 443 traffic to the interal IP of the OWA box

That will depend on your router - but basically, only one machine can have a certain port.

So, do you require SSL on the webserver?

If not, then you could simply direct port 80 at the webserver, and port 443 at the exchange server.

The only other alternatives you have here is to use the webserver as a front end, or some kind of horrid port redirection (which will redirect https://whatever.whatever.com to https://whatever.whatever.com:444)
