We have a Windows 2003 Server 64bit running Exchange 2007. This is a new install. We have an SSL certificate installed on the default website. Now for the issue.

When accessing OWA @ from the outside I am unable to get to OWA. I can however get to https://server/exchange from inside the network. I have uncovered the following:

When I use IE I get a page cannot be displayed with no additional information. When I use Firefox I get redirected to the address https://server.domain.local/owa.I have noticed that when i type in the addess the Exchange virtual directory is redirecting me to the owa directory but it appears to be using the internal name of hte server. Which of course is not accessable from the outside. Any ideas?
