You need to include the external FQDN too.

C:\>rpccfg /hd
Server Name                         Port Settings

mail.brnets.com                     6001 6004
orange                              6001 6004
orange.brnets.local                 6001 6004

If your cert is not a well-known 3rd party cert, it will need to be
installed on the client machines. Outlook doesn't pop-up a dialog box
like IE does - it just denies it.

What can cause Outlook 2003 to report that your Exchange server is
unavailable when you try to connect to it via an external source?

I have:

exchange:6001-6002;exchange.myserver.ca:6001-6002;exchange:6004;exchange
.myserver.ca:6004

in my exchanges registry under ....rpc\rpcproxy

and

the other GC setting on my DC/GC box which is a multi string value with
NSPI interface protocol sequences, value of ncacn_http:6004 under
.....NTDS\Parameters in the registry.

The only thing I have not done is install the enterprise ca cert on the
client machine because I was hoping that I wouldn't have to do that
since I want to ideally have others access the site who are not going be
accessing RPC over HTTP from the inside ever.

Since no where that I know of is it required for rpc proxy that Exchange
has to be on a DC, you can deduce the answer is yes.
