Accessing RWW from within the network.

We just recently configured RWW (Remote Web Workforce) for our Exchange Small business 2003 server.

We do not seem to be able to access this from within the network. Is this a legit limitation?

The practical need of this comes when users are in the parking lot, and need to do RWW to access some info.

If it is not possible, is there an alternative to access this from within the network, through IE.

Thanks

You can access the Remote Web Workplace logon screen by opening up IE and typing in "server\remote" (without the quotes) where server is the name of your SBS server.
If your users are in the parking lt, then you would need to have wireless in your building that can reach the parking lot and they would need to connect to the wireless.

To access this remotely - not connected to your wireless, you would need to point to http://www.yourdomain.com/remote or http://mail.yourdomain.com/remote or whateer FQDN points to your server / workplace IP address.
You will also need to open up Port TCP 4125 on your firewall and forward it to your server.
If you cannot use this link internally, then there is a problem with the configuration on our server.
Open up IIS on your server and expand the Default Website.  You should see a subdirectory (Virtual Directory) called Remote.  If not, then it is missing.  If it is there, then there are configurational issues that need resolving.
