SBS server 2008 remote web workplace unavailable inside network

Posted on 2011-04-28

The SBS server 2008 RWW Remote Web Workplace is working fine when outside the network
but when I try to access the same site from inside the network it doesnt work and I receive an "Internet Explorer cannot display this page"
I think it used to work before I installed a Draytek Vigor 2820 router.
If I try https://server.domain.local it works fine.

I need it to work from the remote address from both inside and outside because we have sales people who use it outside and then cannot access it when they come to the office. I dont want to have to create two shortcuts or favourites for internal/external.

Any help much appreciated.

    It's setup properly...this is normal behavior when you're accessing the site from the intranet.

    If you want to get around it, you have a couple options. Depending on the number of computers, the easiest way is to edit the hosts file.
    Add the local ip address of the sbs server followed by, you should be good to go.
    (hosts file is located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc - Windows 7)

    Another option is to edit your dns server to redirect - I've never needed to do it, so you'd have to do some research...or wait on another expert.
