I recenly installed sharpoint 2 on my SBS 2003 and now I can't get to the OWA page. I get a 404 error. Sharepoint seems to be be installed OK. When I put in the OWA URL, I get the login pop-up as if I were going to the sharepoint pages.

How do I run OWA without interference from Sharepoint?

sharepoint = mail.martin-blanck.com
owa = mail.martin-blanck.com/exchange

Thanks

you will be better off adding another IP address to the network card and the specifing ip addresses for those websites in iis manager, one ip for listening to sharepoint, and the other for owa
then update you dns records to point to the corrections you did.

I've only one IP address to work with. I'm using URLs (host heaer values) to differentiate between websites in IIS.

you are not using private ip addresses on the inside?

Yes, of course, I see what your saying now. Yes, I could add an additional private IP to the card. But my firewall is pretty basic and won't like me do anything but a one to one mapping on port 80. It only supports one external IP address.

so you added the host headers through iis manager, and for sharepoing you will need to add alternate access mappings...

Yes, the default web site,where sharepoint is, has mail.martin-blanck.com set as the host header. The main corproate external website is on another web site under IIS with a host header value of www.martin-blanck.com.

Can I run sharepoint on something other than the defualt website? I didn't see any options during the install.

Thanks

I'll close this now. I ended up uninstalling Sharepoint to get OWA back online. I think I'll try to install Sharepoint to some other than the default web site, rather than the other way around.

Thanks for your help.
