Hey guys,

I am running SBS03 and just installed a new SonicWall a couple of weeks back. Well, i noticed today that my OWA is not working now. Im under the assumtption that something is not configured correctly in the firewall.
I currently have the HTTPS rule showing the WAN going to my LAN address for my SBS03 box.
I have port 443 open.
I have port 80 open.
Any suggestions?? I am completely baffled!

You have to change the SSL management port on the sonicwall to something other then 443 so that it works. Should be on the administration page under system.

Ok, Im looking under System, Administration and there is nothing that says SSL management but there is a section labeled Web Management Settings with a box check off next to HTTPS and the port assigned says 444. Is this what you are reffering too?

Yes, this is where you define the secure connection the management interface.  You are saying that it is already changed to 444? It doesn't say 443?

Exactly it says 444 not 443. Is that correct?

Thats great, this eliminates a possible conflict when trying access SSL pages from outside.
Did you already create a rule for HTTPS from WAN * * to  LAN x.x.x.x (address of the exchange server) ?

Can you still access OWA internally? If you want to post the TSR you can download one from the diagnostics page under system.

Tech Support Report.

Well, I think you need to get it working internally and the we can deal with accessing it form outside. Is the Exchange server on the same subnet and VLAN as the sonciwall?

I was just wanting to look at the firewall rules, but I am thinking that it is probably configured correctly. IN the IIS manager on the exchange box, can you browse to the OWA interface?

So it comes up? So you still cannot access it using the internal IP address from another machine?

You renamed the exchange folder in IIS to remote? and your FQDN resolves your public IP address correctly still right? ZGo ahead and post that TSR, you can edit it to remove what you feel is is sensitive information, but the more whole you leave it the better.

I have been using the remore extenstion since I came here and it has worked. I also use the extension "exchange" and that worked also and I see a folder in there named that and I can browse it. What is FQDN I am not sure what that is?

Should I pull everything on the TSR or only certain things?

It works. I can get to your OWA login page. The soincwall is not going to let route out and back in on your public interface. If you want to access it internally use the local address.

I used the IP address of your WAN interface to get to it. If you email the hostname I will try that.
