Forefront TMG Owa Redirect

Hi ive configure Exchange 2010 with Forefront TMG to use it for OWA

It's working fine but my users need to type https://owa.xxx.xxx/owa

 Can anyone help me please

You cannot remove the requirement for the /owa as that is how Exchange is designed to work.
The only thing that you can do is put a redirect file in to the root of the web site that will redirect the users to the /owa URL.

But one question i have..

Presently we are running isa 2006 and Exchange 2010

When we go to owa we can enter

http://owa.xxx.xxx and we have the login screen

When we try the same thing with Forefront TMG we need to add the /owa at the end

Can you explain me why ?  I don't understand

Thanks !
