Before you installed SP2 - did you install SBS SP1 in the correct order?  You cannot just jump to SP2 with SBS2003.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi llhuff,  thanks for the info but my problem is not accessing the site from outside my network. When I try to click on manage my internal websites from the server console directly it asks me to login but does not accept my credentials.

What IP Address and TCP Port are assigned to the default website in IIS on your server?
0
 
ScruggsTAuthor Commented:
alanhardisty, it should be standard ports as I have not altered them and the IP is 10.0.10.22
When i originally set this system up I used 192.168.100.2. Do you suppose it still has my old IP info? Did not think of that.

Alan HardistyCommented:
Please set the IP to All Unassigned and make sure the ports are 80 and 443.  IIS has issues if you set the IP address to a specific one.
After changing the IP to All Unassigned, please run iisreset and test.

All the sites are set to all unassigned. The certificate on the system is se;f signed and i seem to remember a problem like this related to the certificates.

If I am on a client i can see the comanyweb, on the server I get a login dialog and when i enter my credentials it says access denied. This is happening for the internal web site managment as well.
