Re: Using MS Outlook in firewalled systems / OWA limited functionality?

I followed a step by step guide I found on at msexchange.org, but my connection 
with the exchange server always times out. I can't find anything in the error 
logs, access via OWA works just fine, the RPC application on IIS is properly 
installed and the certificates are installed locally (on the client that's 
trying to access) too. I can connect via Outlook when connected to the VPN 
(same network as the exchange server is in), but via RPC/HTTPS it's a nogo.
 
Are there any common pitfalls I'm missing? My server for instance has a self 
signed certificate, i.e. it's manually added to the trusted root certificates 
on the client. But IE for instance still brings up the security alert (with the 
first two items green, and the third one yellow ("The name on the security 
certificate is invalid or does not match the name of the site"), which is 
clear, because the server is known under a different name from externally than 
internally.
 
Ideas anyone?

Thanks

There are excellent docs at both MSExchange.org and ISAServer.com.

Yes, I'm using Exchange 2003. Any idea how RPC over HTTPS is configured?


 


thanks

You don?t mention what version of Exchange and/or AD they have.

RPC over HTTP(S) is an inherent feature in Exchange 2003.

Hi all,
 
I have customers that are locked behind a firewall that only lets HTTP and 
HTTPS traffic through. using OWA works nicely for them, but some functionality 
is not available to them as they are using IE rather than Outlook itself to 
access the Exchange server. Is there a way to access the Exchange server with 
Outlook (not IE) over HTTP/HTTPS?
 
One of the main functionalities they're missing is the ability to save messages 
to disk in batches (i.e. mark 20 messages and save them). Any ideas how that 
can be done in OWA?
 
Thanks
