I've recently been helping a colleague setup a new SBS2000 installation.
Everything appears to be configured correctly to his and my reckoning yet we cannot view OWA either internally or externally? We get a "10061: Connection refused" error with the following message:
"When the server, while acting as a gateway or proxy, contacted the upstream content server, the connection was refused. This usually results from trying to connect to a service that is inactive on the upstream server."
I've been searching through Technet and through previous posts & threads on here but with no luck?
I've got a destination set listing the external IP of the server and the appropriate paths for the exchange virtual directories. The web publishing rule is set to use this destination set and redirect the request to the internal IP of the server.
I've set OWA up on SBS2000 several times before using this basically standard configuration and had no problems...
Can anyone shed any light on this at all? I'm rapidly losing hair over this...

Agree with that. Although I'd like to point out that in the book "MCSE Exam 70-227 Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration Server 2000 Training Kit" on page 245 (Lesson 2 Publishing Web servers securely) is pointed out:
quote: 3. On the Destination Set screen, select a destination set that includes the IP address of the server that you are publishing, then click Next.
The conclusion to this seems very simple to me: Don't buy Microsoft Books
I am basicaly trying the same task, although new to ISA server. I ahve tried following microsofts example in the MCSE training book, and no suprises get the same error as above. If anyone has time to read through te exercise and point out the correct way of doing things, it would be appreciated. I have used FQDN in the destination set, and there is also no path. Is this correct as the example uses the default root? Should you be able to connect by IP address externally? Trying to study with this book has turned into a nightmare. Spent more time reading forums. Help!
