rpc over http is made for you.
Hi, We have a network with exchange 2003 server. We also currently have a Cisco VPN. We are upgrading our Manufacturing system to a new software package that can only run thru Terminal Services for outside people. Because of that we are looking at getting rid of the VPN and just use Terminal Services for people to work with the manufacturing software and transfer files between the network and their own workstation off site. These same people do have offices in house so there is times when they do connect directly to the network at their desk.
My question is what options do I have with Outlook? They have to have the ability to sync their mail, folders and calendar which they can do currently with the VPN but when we shut it down because of terminal services, then what? I hate to have to keep a vpn running just so people can sync their outlook with the exchange server.
I know pop3 will not solve this and the web outlook does not really help because they want the ability to work in outlook offline and they when they get to a hotel or such, they want to connect and do a sync and d/l updates and u/l what they have done.
Anyone have any ides???
