I just moved to a new server and for some reason or another it is not working.
I click brouse and it displays the following
The page must be viewed over a secure channel
The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please try the following:

Type https:// at the beginning of the address you are attempting to reach and press ENTER.
HTTP Error 403.4 - Forbidden: SSL is required to view this resource.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Go to Microsoft Product Support Services and perform a title search for the words HTTP and 403.
Open IIS Help, which is accessible in IIS Manager (inetmgr), and search for topics titled About Security, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and About Custom Error Messages.

Are you trying to access it over a secure channel?

https://servername.domain.local/exchange

What happens if you use https:// in the OWA URL instead of http://?  If the IIS config for the new OWA page is set up to require SSL (https) then either users need to specify https, or you can config IIS to automatically redirect http to https.

Where did you get the SSL certificate for the new server, did you copy it from the old server?  Did the URL change when you moved to the new server?

I'm thinking there is a problem with the SSL cert that you are using.

Kindly check if there is SSL enabled on default website in IIS.If so let's deselct the SSL for testing purpose and then try to browse "https://servername", and let me know what was the result.

Do you get the exact same error when you visit both https://servername/exchange and https://full.external.domain.com/exchange

Since the page is secured by SSL, you will have to access it using "https"
