  • Loopback, possibly DNS?

    I have a Windows 2003 SBS Standard edition server. This host OWA which I can access internally via https://mail.mycompanyname.com/exchange. While connected to the internal network I cannot access this site. It just times out. I cannot ping mail.mycompanyname.com internally. If I want to visit OWA internally I need to goto myservername/exchange

    The issue I am having is trying to configure an iPhone with active sync connected to the internal wifi network. I have tried connecting it via:

    https://mail.mycompanyname.com/exchange
    https://mail.mycompanyname.com
    mail.mycompanyname.com/exchange
    mail.mycompanyname.com

    Fails everytime, I assume because it cannot find the address. I am not sure if this is a networking thing (firewall/router is Cisco PIX ASA 5505) or DNS configuration on my server. I am sure it is something stupid, I looked around but really couldn't find anything on it (I think I might just be wording it wrong)

    Hi,

    I guess your problem is in the router/firewall. - I don't know much about Cisco, but for ie. Sonicwalls, you will have to edit the NAT/firewall rule to look something like this, maybe it can point you in the right direction.

    If you create a accessrule, it is usually from "WAN to LAN" > OWA server.
    In Sonic's you need editing the rule to "* to LAN" > OWA server.

    You can do it by DNS - Maybe the best choise, I don't know.
    Best regards,
    Carsten.

      I think this is on the firewall end, hopefully a Cisco guy might be able to help me out
