Hi,

This event is expected as the client is trying to use the wrong port or the wrong protocol to access the site

So if a user tries to reach owa using http in stead of https, you would get this event (Unless you have configure forwarding from http to https on the server).

"if a user tries to reach owa using http in stead of https" --->
All users on the network connects to Terminal Server (W2008) using Remote Desktop Connection and run Office Apps (Word/Excel/Outlook).
There are some users that directly opens files from their desktop computer from mapped drives (off SBS2011) because some apps could not be installed on the Terminal Server environment.
Outside users connect to the Terminal Server as well using Remote Desktop.
No user knows how to connect to RWW and most computers on the network has Windows 7 or 8 HOME version, so can't accept connections.
Having said that, if I assume that no internal user tried http instead of https for OWA, could it be some hackers trying to poke around my SBS2011 network?

have you installed anything new on the server? like an antivirus program?

also are you running sharePoint on that server?

Please advise

have you installed anything new on the server? like an antivirus program? ---> everything was fine until I installed Symantec EndPoint Protection 12.1. Users could not connect to the server/SBS2011 via mapped Drives ... etc.
So I completely uninstalled EndPoint protection from SBS2011 now.

also are you running sharePoint on that server? ---> it is a default SBS2011 install. I don't know what sharepoint is or does.

@wsawalhi
I followed up on the link above and ran the command in SharePoint Mgmt Shell, but it DID NOT return True. Actually nothing was returned.

You could run the SBS 2011 BPA for possible answer:
