I have a problem accessing the RWA site on an SBS 2011 server, as it always redirects to the OWA page.

I have recently configured three remote users to access Exchange from Outlook using HTTPS\RPC and this is working well. However, when I try to go to it redirects to OWA. I have checked the HTTP Redirect for the remote web page and it is set to go to OWA. If I deselect it and run IISRESET then I can access the RWA page, but the HTTPS\RPC stops working and the remote clients Outlook disconnects.

The default website and quite a lot of the sites below it are also redirected (aspnet-client, autodiscover, clientwebservice, ecp, ews, microsoft-server-activesync, oab, powershell, rpc, rpcwithcert, selfupdate, webhelp, wss). I'm sure I must have set this at some point, but I'm not sure why, and now I need the remote workers to be able to access files on the server.

Any ideas much appreciated.
