  • remote clients unable to login to OWA using the remote URL

    Hi there
    This is probably a simple question to answer for you guys!
    I have a server running SBS2008 with exchange. When I try to log in remotely using the "remote.domainname.co.uk/owa" it cannot find the site.
    However if I use the WAN IP address of the router which has the routing set up in it I can access OWA without any problems.
    Im thinking it is a DNS problem not resolving the name properly but am a bit green on these things.
    Any help would be appriciated.

    You will need to set up a record in your external DNS to map remote.domainname.co.uk to your IP address

    You probably already have this set up for mail.domainname.co.uk so you could try using that
