Error when connecting to http://servername:444/

When I try to access companyweb from the internet I get the following error:

The page cannot be displayed  
Explanation: The Web server refused the connection, possibly because a service on the upstream server is inactive.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Try the following:

Refresh page: Search for the page again by clicking the Refresh button. The timeout may have occurred due to Internet congestion.
Check spelling: Check that you typed the Web page address correctly. The address may have been mistyped.
Access from a link: If there is a link to the page you are looking for, try accessing the page from that link.
Contact website: You may want to contact the website administrator to make sure the Web page still exists. You can do this by using the e-mail address or phone number listed on the website home page.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Error Code 10061: Connection refused
Background: When the gateway or proxy server contacted the upstream (Web) server, the connection was refused. This usually results from trying to connect to a service that is inactive on the upstream server.
 
I can access rww owa just fine.  I have run the connect to internet wizard to open the port on the firewall multiple times.  I have also enabled port forwarding for port 444 from my router to the sbs server.

What gives?

You shouldn't be able to connect to http://servername:444

From inside your LAN you would connect to your Companyweb page by using http://companyweb

If you were to use port 444 on your URL, it would have to be with https instead, ie, https://servername:444

From OUTSIDE your LAN (from the Internet) you need to use a PUBLIC FQDN, ie, https://server.domain.com:444

Yea, I use https://mail.servername.com/remote for rww and https://mail.servername.com/exchange for owa.  These both work fine but https://mail.servername.com:444/  gives me the error.  I can access http://companyweb just fine inside my network.

So, you have ISA Server installed on your SBS?  Follow this KB article to publish it to the Internet using port 444:

I have ISA 2004 and there is a publishing rule for companyweb created by the wizard.  But I will try the instructions.

The rule for companyweb is for internal use.  Normally companyweb is accessed through RWW and not directly.  So if you want to give direct access you need to follow that KB article.
