OWA on Draytek Vigor 2820

Dear experts,

Have a question which is related to a Draytek Vigor 2820 router (with firewall).

We have set up OWA in our company and it has been working fine. We used to have a Draytek 2600 router and I have configured all the forwarding need for OWA to work. It has been working.

Last week we bought a 2820. I configured it the similar way as I did to the 2600. Internet connection is fine, VPNs are connected, but OWA no longer works. I have double-check every settings and they are very much the same. The only thing different is that on 2820 there is an Advance Setting option, which 2600 don't have. Within the Advance Setting there is an entry for Codepage, Window size and Session timeout.

I haven't changed any of those default settings on the Advance Setting - so they still read :-

Codepage :- ANSI(1251)-Latin I
Window size :- 65535
Session timeout :- 1440 Minute

I don't know if I need to do anything to these values in order to get OWA working on a 2820 router. If I swap the 2600 back in it works straightaway so there shouldn't be a problem with my Exchange server. I believed there must be something I missed out on that 2820 router.

Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance.

On the 2820 you need to change the management settings so that the management webpages dont sit on ports 80 and 443, I change them to 8080 and 4430, you then access them by hitting https:\\192.168.1.1:4430 and http:\\192.168.1.1:8080.

Port 80 isnt usually a problem but port 443 is.

No that was a joke. But you can imagine the frustration of not getting it done, knowing it is only something fairly simple to change.....
