After updating SBS 2003 to Service Pack 1 and updating Exchange i can no longer access my server remotely. I used to be able to use the server static ip address and access the remote server logon page. I also cannot access OWA any more. for example ipaddres/remote and ipaddress/exchange no longer work. Can someone please help?

Also when i am logged on at a client pc i could put the local ip address of the server and access the default company web sites where i store all of my documents and lists for my staff. That no longer works either.

In IIS make sure the websites are enabled, then look at the application pools and make sure they are enabled.

the websites are enabled and show running. can you please explain the application pools. not sure what that means.

is thiis common after a SP update?
Have you tried re-running CEICW (Connect to Internet Wizard) on the SBS server, don't change your settings, just re-run the wizard.

Just above the wesites you will see a folder called application pools. click the plus sign next to it and make sure they don't have a red X. Also run the internet connection wizard again from the server management console. If that does not work open a command prompt and type iisreset.
Can you access the site internally? https://servername/remote or exchange. How about opening ie internally and typing companyweb?

i did the iisreset. the only computer that can access the http://companyweb is the server

check the pools and they are running

Did you re-run the CEICW (Connect to Internet Wizard) from server management like modcon suggested? 90% of the time that will fix connectivity issues. If that does not work we will need more details about your SBS setup.
