I am testing a new Exchange server on VM. I set it up and I am able to send/receive emails from/to outside world. OWA works internally without any problems.

When I try to access it from outside, I receive a warning about cert (which means that my web browser is connected to exchange), I agree and reveive:
'The connection was interrupted'

Is it possible, that the server has not enough memory? I run it on 1.5GB. What else should I check

hi there,

could you give us a bit more information on how your exchange is published to the internet?
Is it a simple port forwarding or are you using a reverse-proxy?

It is facing the Internet with a public IP address. MX record points directly to this server. It is behind a router and RRAS though but all port forwarding options are setup
I checked port 443 is opened. I used 'canyouseeme.org'

Is it a single server?

Quite bizar.

Is there maybe some more information (maybe an error message to work with)?

You directed me with this sentence:

I tried to access OWA from my PC which is behind the same router. I used RDP and tested OWA and it was fine :)

Hint: never test RDP/OWA from the same network using a public IP, it might cause routing issues

m1979, as you said it might cause issues, depending on how routing is setup.

I'm glad you got it sorted out!
