Hi Mustafa,
You don't need 2 different publishing rules for OWA and RPC. Just add
the /rpc* to the OWA publishing and disable the other publishing rule.
Secondly, you don't need an entry in the external DNS for BE server for
configuring profile using RoHTTP Proxy. That is the whole point of using
RoHTTP Proxy. All your RPC requests are encapsulated and delivered to
the RPC Proxy for doing "whatever" and deliver the results "whatever"
back to the client encapsulated in HTTPS. All the client needs is an
HTTPS connection to the FE server either directly or through ISA.Outlook
does not use the forms based authentication that you configure for the
listener. Outlook uses the authentication method configured within your
Outlook profile. This should be set to Basic for RPC over HTTPS.

Hi Raj,
I have created a seperat publishing rule for RPC over HTTPS and added
/rpc/* to path. I removed other paths: /exchange/*, /exchweb/*,

It is interesting to know for me:
I used the same listener in RPC over HTTPS publishing like in OWA
publishing. It menas that the Listener has the authentication
authentication. But I tried both form-based and standard authentication
for RPC over HTTPS. It didn't help me.

To your previous mail:
I didn't have the record of EXchange back-end server in the external
THat is also not my wish. I want o protect back-end from hackers.
of that I have twio Firewalls and ISA 2004 in Lab. Only ISA external IP
address should be connected by extern clients. THen, you know, ISA will
forwar (SSL bridging) traffic to front-end.

I tested your suggestion before. If I have the back-end in the DNS list
and type back-end Exchange in Exchange Server field, I can connect me
