Exchange 2007 using internal url insted of external

Exchange 2007, running Active Directory on Windows 2003 64 bit

We have outlook Web Access Enabled.

We have a legitimate ssl certificate for
company.com.au

but when I go to the company.com.au/exchange it directs me to
company.network/owa

and I need it to use company.com.au/owa for both the RPC over HTTP and for OWA so that it doesnt keep telling me the certificate is wrong?

Any ideas guys

the certificate is for the real url, not the internal yes.

mail.company.com.au is the certificate (company of course is an alias here)

so split DNS is....

having company.network and company.com.au both on the same machine.

because of the way this company works, we catucally have the real world IP address on the mail server (behind a firewall)

there is no internal IP address to worry about,

ok,

I setup DNS so that company.com.au will be resolved on the Active Directory Server (Exchange Server) DNS as well.


I found some other info last night which I tried


Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "EWS*" -ExternalUrl "Https://mail.company.com.au/EWS/Exchange.asmx" -InternalUrl "Https://mail.company.com.au/EWS/Exchange.asmx"

after trying this, I do get the correct address trying to load.

it ask me to authenticate to get access to the web page for mail.company.com.au
then it shows the owa log on screen

the this page

https://mail.company.com.au/owa/auth/owaauth.dll

says that the page can not be found

not sure what I have broken or how to reverse that one (sorry, for making this more compleciated)

again,

Single AD Server with Exchange, all our staff work remotely so idea is to use Web Access and Outlook anywhere.
Sits behind a firewall, with no NAT and has on the AD/Exchange server the real world IP address

We have a SSL cert for the real world url/ip address from geotrust.
