    What version of IE are you using to access OWA on the 2k machines?

    IE verion 6 cipher 128

    is there a setting on the OWA server IIS that is set?
    we are using SSL https.

    Hi ITDaddy

    Are you using OWA from an external location? If you are using SSL, are you forcing SSL within IIS?

    I have just checked one of our W2k Pro machines using IE 6 and it has no problems with accessing OWA externally. We do not force SSL within IIS but we do have HTTP forwarded to HTTPS within the ISA Server.

    I managed to get owa working on a windows 98 PC today. Was surprised it worked!

    What error do you get? ...or is it a 'page cannot be displayed' problem?

    It may be that the security settings are too high in IE, put everything back to default and also make sure that cookies are enabled. 8)

    I always had problems with a forced SSL connection within IIS. So decided to use mapping within ISA Server, since then had no issues and it also means that anyone trying to connect externally can use http and it will direct them to the correct page instead of a page error due to not using https. I know that you can use a little Java Script to do this but ISA seems to have it covered! :biggrin

    i set all IE security setting backto default.
    no go. IE had SSL enabled?

    It use to work I believe but this Exchange tech change the way
    we long on to it. we dont long like the windows logon prompt
    it comes up with this Norma OWA accesslong you would see
    say from outside our LAN/WAN; the OWA Splash screen type
    we use to get prompted like the Windows Logon type ask
    for DOmain, logon name and pass buut know itis the OWA splash long screen th windows (ourwindows 2k pro) cant bring up
    page cant be found error

    Just a quick thought before going any further....the address you are typing in to the browser....is it like this:

    https://servername/remote ?

    or are you trying with just http (without the 's')?

    EDIT:
    It reads like these PC's are all internal..if so...why don't you configure them to use Outlook?

    Gman,

    i like to use Mozilla Firefox on some things.
    and come to find out firefox explained the issue with message prompts says the certificate is name wrong "do i want to accept?"
    i said yes and the splash logon page came right up

    XP must just accept it while 2k doesnt? not sure why?
    will check to see why incorrect cert being passed is wrong name
    thanks GMAN hope this helps anyone out

    you guys are always there for me
    i hope i can be there for you!

    No problem Robert!

    Just so you know....the cert that is produced for OWA is self generated unless a different one is specified. So if the self generated one is used it will always come up with the "trust this cert or not" dialogue box. This is due to the cert being generated under the url of 'publishing.domain.local' but using the /server/remote address, so it flags up saying the address you are wanting does not correspond...don't worry about that. If you install the cert (from the pop up dialogue box that appears) you will not receive this again. You can always export the cert from your Exchange box (from IIS) and install it on each W2k box that way. No more pop ups. :biggrin

    hey dudes
    one more caveat!forgot to mention.

    we have a (proxy email server) that forward all emails
    to our Exchange 2003 server and requires this named certificate
    for the SSL...our tech named it the wrong name
    but named it the name this proxy email server needs
    but our website url is named different.

    question. can i generate another key from the CA?
    so I can put it in the Trusted Site download in our ADI system
    (Active Directory Integrated) or import into into each IE?
    other words, can i have more than one cert from the same CA off oour email server thorugh the ISS console??
    thanks

    1/2 way there! yahoooooo!

    AD cert distribution...hmm I will be honest, never tried that! It sounds feasible! It might have to be done with a logon script rather than AD due to the distribution as far as I'm aware via AD is for .exe files...i.e programs.

    2 Certs, 1 site - Sorry mate...you can only link one Cert to each website / virtual directory in IIS :(
    Its not that hard to create a new cert with the correct details and send that out to your proxy/email server? That might be a better way overall but may take a little more work, however after its done.....its done! :biggrin

    hey Big Zeb

    freaking torks me off when i cant get this to work; i have done it in the paste and it worked but i cant:

    I install the cert in IE7 and where it says to install cert for our mail server but when i do this it sayd done successfullly but i close out IE and reopen trying the same link and that dumb securityprompt is not supressed? wtf am i doing wrong AND

    the @2KP machines do not prompt (IE6) for certs they used to
    like firefox does and IE6 does they prompt and IE6 on XP does
    by how to get the 2kpro machines to atleast prompt for CErt

    the cert is supposedly pushed down from IIS thru SSL like you said you had issues with but it used to work and works on
    XP no problem. i wish i knew how to set maybe security settings? to get ti to prompt and take out old certs??

    what you think? to make my 2k pro prompt again for cert?
    freaking Foxfire and IE7 and IE6 do on XP but nothing on 2kpro anymore??
    thanks:eek:
