After SBS2003 Repair, Companyweb & SPS Sites not available from outside network

Good morning!

About a month ago we repaired our SBS 2003 installation after some intermittent NIC connectivity issues. Afterwards, we have been unable to connect to our companyweb site as well as our bottom-level portal sites.

We are operating on a 2-NIC configuration with a SSL certificate from GoDaddy.

OWA & RWW work fine - no issues there.

On the server, and on internal network clients, we can connect to companyweb via https://servername:444/default.aspx without incident (other than a certificate warning since it's a different domain).

From those same clients, however, if we attempt to login via https://domainname.net:444 using Firefox we receive a "Data Transfer Interrupted" error. Using IE7 I receive a "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" error.

companyweb is using the same GoDaddy SSL certificate that is being used by Default Web Site (OWA / RWW, etc) so I know the certificate is valid and is assigned to a private key.

Please see the attached iis.txt file for my current IIS configuration.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Thank you,

The attached IIS.TXT does not show if the companyweb server has the host header of domainname.net on 444

Thats the first thing I would check.

companyweb has a host header of "companyweb" as Default Web Site (running OWA, RWW) has the host header of domainname.net on port 80 - setting both to domainname.net causes a conflict.

Am I missing something?

After changing the IP address on companyweb from the LAN IP on both companyweb and companyweb.domain.local, as well as companyweb for the SSL identity it appears everything is functional again.

I think the issue was with the SSL IP address being a local address instead of All Unassigned.

Thanks for your help!
