Firewall should not be the problem considering rpc over http uses port
80 for http.... Are you using a secure ssl connection? Try disabling the
firewall and trying it again, though it should not make a difference...
does rpc over http work at all for any other clients on the same local

Subject: [exchangelist] XP Windows Firewall exception rules? 



I have a user running Outlook 2003 Pro trying to connect to Exchange
2003 over the internet using RPC/HTTP.  He is also running Windows
Firewall (the one that comes with XP SP2).  He is unable to connect, it
times out on him when he starts up Outlook.  He is able to connect from
a workstation that is not running the WFW.  No other users are having
any issues with RPC/HTTP over the internet.  OWA is also OK for him and
everyone else. 


Any idea what kind of exception rule(s) need to be programmed into his
XP Windows FW so he can access the Exchange 2003 server over RPC/HTTP?
