Can't access /owa and /remote on SBS 2011 externaly

Hi,

Here is my problem.  I can't access my /owa or /remote externaly on sbs 2011. It worked before and I don't know the reason why it stopped working. I can access the site with my internal ip/owa and /remote but externaly I can't. I've tried to open all the ports linked to sbs 2011 (25, 80, 443, 987, 3389) but that doesn't work. After that, I even put the sbs server in the dmz to be sure that something else wasn't blocking this but it still didn't work.

In IE I get a 404 error and in chrome I get this error : getfile: Cannot open URL(/etc_ro/web/owa,No such file or directory)

To test, I tried to access remote desktop with the mstsc command and the external ip adress and it worked.

Please help,
Rémi

Looks like you are hitting a different server with its own root directory set up. This would imply a problem with your external DNS setup.

There is only one server in this network. Also when I connect via mstsc I get the right machine.

You said you connected by IP address though. And I'm not saying you are connecting to another machine on your network. That would imply a firewall/port forwarding rule.

I said it looks like an external DNS issue. So even if your firewall is right, if you are connecting to another server on the internet (may not even be your server) all the port forwarding in the world won't matter.

The /etc_ro/web directory is a fairly common Linux web host directory. So based on the error you provided, I suspect tour external DNS record now points to a web server. Maybe your company's hosted website. Or maybe someone else's server. I can't say for sure.

Thanks,
I forgot to close this before but it was a camera system that an employee just installed that had a linux webserver built in that was causing the troubles.  You were right about connecting to the wrong server, thanks a lot!
