SBS 2011 Setup - Connect to Internet Wizard Fails

I installed a SBS 2011 server about a year ago and didn't complete the Exchange setup as it wasn't needed at that time.  I am now circling back to finish Exchange setup and am encountering issues.  Specifically:

When I run the "Connect to the Internet" Wizard in the Console ( subsequent steps won't run until I complete this step ) it fails with the error:
­      Windows SBS did not properly configure your e-mail.  To correct this, re-run this wizard.

I checked the CTIW.log and it shows this:

Okay, so something about WInRM is not happy.  l tried to launch the Exchange Management Console and can connect without any issues - no WinRM errors.

I then run EMTshooter.ps1 just to be safe... all checks out.

The only variable that I haven't eliminated is that we are running a production website on port 80 and binding do the same IP that the default website is using.  However, all Exchange virtual directories are binding on 443 and I can access those through a web browser without any issues.

I'm stumped.  Any help or direction would be very much appreciated!

From what you've said I believe it will be because of the website binding on port 80.  Is your website on Apache?

I'd consider changing the port on the website temporarily and re-running the wizard.

David - yup, you were right.  I disabled the production website ( also hosted by IIS ) and the wizard completed.  Thanks!
