Multiple logins needed for RWW - IIS problems?
Posted on 2008-10-22
I have a customer with a SBS 2003 Server and I am trying to configure Remote Web Workplace. I am using a Linksys BEFSX41 firewall router. I am having multiple problems.
Externally, I can access OWA with no problems. For RWW, I am prompted to login 3 times. The first login is a dialog box. The second is the RWW screen. The third is another login box. Once I login all three times, RWW is started.
Internally, I can access both OWA and RWW with no additional login prompts.
I believe this to be a problem with IIS authentication/permissions. I compared IIS settings to my server where RWW and OWA work with no issues. I made numerous changes to IIS to try to fix this issue but nothing has worked thus far. Here is a summary of what I did with IIS:
-Corrected IP address of companyweb.
-Changed port number for SharePoint Central Administration to 8083. (McAfee Enterprise was using 8081)
-Unchecked use of "basic authentication" for default website. When I did this, I was presented with a box for "inheiritance overrides" for other things that were using basic authentication and I selected all. This broke access to OWA, but I added basic authentication for /Exchange and fixed that issue.
Do I have this in a big knot? I am not sure what else to check. Help!
Another issue I am having is that once I connect to RWW, I cannot connect to most of the client computers. Some are setup up with custom RDP ports which, I guess, I will need to change back to 3389. On other computers, I have verified that port 3389 is in the registry key but I have confirmed with netstat that port 3389 is not listening. Can I configure these changes company wide via group policy or do I have to manually make the changes at each station?
