Problem trying to get to the exchange 2013 admin page

I just installed exchange 2013 standard. The way it is supposed to work is that you go to https://localhost/ecp with the version number attached.

I am getting the login screen and apparently logging in OK. However, I suspect that the page uses activex. Since it is a server, the enhanced browser security thing was blocking things,

I took off the enhanced browser security and also tried allowing active x content, moving localhost to a trusted zone etc.

Getting bleary eyed here. I have a couple fo questions

1. Am I correct in assuming that something is blocking an active x component?

2. Can you run active x from other browsers? I"m assuming you can but want to confirm.

The reason I think it's a browser issue is that I just encountered a similar issues integrating a security system with a network.

I'd appreciate any thouughts or ideas

For troubleshooting / testing, I would try accessing using a browser with some tools, such as Firefox using the LiveHeaders Extension to show you what requests are blocked and the responses the server is returning. It should tell you what to change even if it can't get in.

UPDATE - I reinstalled server 2012 R2 and exchange 2013.

I still could not see the ecp page on the server. However, when I went to one of the workstations I could access it. Explorer has to be started in the 'run as administrator' mode with activex enabled.

All I needed to do was type https://example/ecp where example is the name of the server.

@not2easy - thanks for the tip on the liveheaders extension. I'll definitely check that out.
