Hi, I've just setup my Exchange 2003 server and would like to setup OWA access. It seems i am able to connect to my OWA server using its hostname ie "http://hostname/exchange" but NOT using the its IP address ie "http://ipaddress/exchange" Seems wierd as the hostname resolves succesfully to the IP, so it shouldn't matter which i use. any assistance would be greatly appreciated thanks

Hi,

Issue resolved. It turned out that i had a host header value set to the hostname under the properties of the default web site-Website Tab. Removing it fixed it. I can now connect by IP.
