I have a situation that I am trying to resolve if possible.  I don't know if it can be done but here goes.
I have 2 servers.  Our primary server "server" is running SBS 2008 standard.  A second server "server2" houses our sharepoint site.
I would like to, if possible, reconfigure the RWW on the sbs 2008 server so that when a user clicks on "internal web site" it takes them to the sharepoint on Server2 rather than the sharepoint site located on the SBS 2008 server (which we aren't using)

On your DNS server (Probably SBS 2008?) you need to change the entry for to point to your sharepoint server.

sorry that should have said entry for "companyweb" or whatever the URL is when you open the browser.

I have tried that.  It doesn't help.  I have set the DNS entry "companyweb" to point to server2.  That does work internally.

But from the RWW console when you click on "Internal web site" it goes to the SBS server sharepoint anyhow.

What I have noticed is the following.

From the outside world I have 2 DNS entries set.

For the SBS server it is "server.mydomain.com"
For server2, I have http and https published to "intranet.mydomain.com"

From the outside when I connect to RWW and click on "internal web site" it goes to https://server.mydomain.com:987
I dont know if it is possible to change that so it would instead got to https://intranet.mydomain.com

in your DNS console there is another forward lookup zone, in mine it's called remote.domainname.co.uk but that's because that is what i called it, there is an entry in there for your server's IP and it says same as parent, modify this entry and that should modify the link from external

I am talking rubbish!
you need to port forward 987 to your sharepoint server instead of your SBS server on your router/firewall

All ideas have been tried.  Unfortunately it seems that the SBS 2008 server does some sort of internal DNS magic.  I setup the firewall forwarding, but when I attempt to use it is simply changes the URL to hpp://server2:987, which then fails.

I am going to file this under "can't be done.

Thank you for your help though.
