    Hi gurus

    Our Office runs SBS2000 with OWA setup for access from external. We have a
    router setup and I can access my OWA from a laptop on the external network
    with no problems.

    At home I also have an SBS2003 setup and from a client within this network I
    try to access my WOrk OWA.

    As soon as i access the work OWA site I get the logon prompt and correctly
    authenticate. But as OWA starts to load I repeatedly get asked to loggon and
    some of the content does not load.

    I have also tried accessing the Work OWA from another identical SBS2000 site
    with the same result.

    Can someone point me in the tight direction ???

    Cheers
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    Thank you for posting in SBS newsgroup.

    It's probably because of the ISA server installed on the home SBS 2003
    server/the another SBS 2000. Please try to clear "Ask unauthenticated
    users for identification" on SBS 2003 server/the another SBS 2000 and see
    if the issue occurs.

    You can do on ISA 2000 Management as following:

    1. Right-click on the server name in ISA management console. Select
    "Properties".
    2. On "Outgoing Web Requests" tab, clear "Ask unauthenticated users for
    identification". If this option is enabled, ISA will authenticate all the
    requests.

    Hope the information help and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,

    Crina Li (MSFT)
