I saw this at Technet ...

Internal URL: https://<CASServerName>/ecp   The internal URL is used to access the EAC from within your organization’s firewall.

But this is my first 2013 Exchange (or any Exchange) server and I am not sure what the CASServerName is.  The name of my Exchange 2013 server is Exchange.  The name of my 2012 Server that does DNS, DHCP and AD/DS is FileServer.

When I enter "https://Exchange/ecp" in Google Chrome's address bar, I get the "Outlook Web App" UI - not the Exchange Admin Center.  Also the "https" is marked out with a red line.  Here is a pic...

if you login to your machine as an administrator, do you then get the exchange admin center?

the marked https in the address bar is likely because you are using the default self-signed certificate.  if you click on https it will say it can't verify the identity of the site

I am logged into the machine as a Domain Admin.  However, I did find out that if I go ahead and log in as a Domain Admin, it does take me to the Exchange Admin Center.
