It's not quite that simple - if you're accessing it internally https://<servername>/exchange should work fine, if you want to access it externally (from other locations over the internet) you'll need to:

1: Get a static IP from your ISP, unless you already have one - or use dyndns
2: Set up DNS to point an address of your choosing to the IP address from your ISP
3: Forward port 443 on your router to your SBS server if this isn't done

Let me know a bit more about your current setup and I can be most specific.

Hi,


http://mail.yourcompany.com/exchange

mail.yourcompany.com means the mail.domainname

 they should be able to access RWW via
http://mail.yourcompany.com/remote

guarav05 that's only going to be true if they've used their hosting control panel to point mail.yourcompany.com to their own IP address, it won't "just work" like that.

Hi Guys, I may not have been clear. It is already set up. I need to know what the address is to access from an external location. Is there somewhere I can go on the server to access this?

maybe you use an external ip-address range instead of a simple ip-address.
in that case you have to check either your publishing webservice (iis/isa/tmg) or your hardware firewall configuration/ router port forwarding.
also i would check any public dns records/subdomains of your company's public webpage.. if there is one.
