I have front-end / back-end Exchange 2003 installed on Windows 2003. I
have the following server names in my network:

Front-end Exchange:
Back-end Exchange:
Global Catalog/Domain Controller:

I use for the RPC over HTTPS connection the common name
I created also the certificate for this common name. This name points to
front-end Exchange Server ip address. Also I defined host header on IIS for my site.

After many trobleshootings I can connect now successfully to Exchange
using RPC over HTTPS .
But the name resolution is strange if I connected to Exchange. I defined
on client computer as Exchange server the name But after
the client connected to Exchange, the name changes to
on the client machine. Why does this behaiviour occur? I don't want that
the other external persons connect directly to my back-end Exchage. In
this case back-end Exchange is not secure during RPC over HTTPS

Best Regards
