Hi experts

I was having some problems with SBS 2011 firewall so i hit restore defaults (which fixed my problem) however now all outlooks keeps trying to connect with no success and owa and remote are not working, i didnt do a backup of firewall rules and i cant restore from backup because lot of work was done since my changes by other users... Outlook works if i disable the firewall but still the remote access not working (not remote desktop) but https://remote.domain.com.au not working which we could use to access files etc, i havnt touched the router setting its still got the the right port forwarding setting

Please help!!!

I already tried fix my network and BPA

Thank you

SBS makes a heavy use of wizards even for (relatively) easy tasks. You should run the "Internet Connection" Wizard and follow the directions given. At some point you get the options for publishing services (such as OWA).

AFAIK, NO. You can import the settings only if you exported them previously. I think this limitation (the inability to restore via backup) is set for security reasons.

If i do a system state recovery would that put the firewall setting back to what it was? also would that effect any users data, example exchange emails etc
