Greetings, experts. I'm an IT Director who is testing out the use of a Motorola Q smart phone. I'm running in to a pesky problem with ISA 2006 that I sure could use some help with.
History first: Exchange 2000. OWA works fine (internally & externally to my network). On ISA 2006 a rule is set up to use HTML forms based authentication (FBA).
Problem: When I attempt to hit my OWA server, the ISA FBA username & password fields appear. I type in my users (with & without the domain) and password. A "the page cannot be displayed" screen appears with "Error Code: 403 forbidden. The server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator (12202)"
When I look at the ISA logs, I see a "denied connection" entry. Protocol = HTTPS, Rule = Default Rule, Client IP = external IP, Client Username = my username, Source Network = External, Destination Network = blank, HTTP Method = GET, URL = http://myisaserversip.com
. (Notice that the URL is not HTTPS.)
I have checked and confirmed that the OWA rule exists, but the request from my Motorola Q smart phone doesn't seem to hit this Rule.
I'm rather despirate as I've got a short amount of time to try the phone. Can anyone help me dig myself out of this hole? While I'm no ISA guru, this doesn't make sense.
Cheers & thank you for taking the time to read this question.
