i had to set rpc or whatever ports to 5000 and 5001 and open them up along
with the port 135. We use 5.5 but i assume its about the same for this.  I
can find the m$ article if you would like it.

Why are you doing this?  You need to open more ports than what you have =
selected.  Mainly, the GC port, port 135, possibly 139.  Why not use a =
VPN connection?  If you have Windows 2000, use RRAS.  If not, then look =
for a project called Wolverine.  It's a small distro that will give you =
PPTP VPN support.  Very easy to setup, and is Linux based.

Hi Everyone,  I've been working on this for the better half of the day =
and can't seem to get anywhere.  I'm trying to setup an Outlook client =
to connect to my Exchange 2K server.  The Outlook client is outside the =
firewall connected via the internet.  I already setup the =
HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Service\MSExchangeDS\Parameters,
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\ParametersSystem to =
point to static port.  I also configured the firewall already for those =
2 ports.=3D20

When I start the Outlook client, I get "Exchanger server unavailable". =
Oh, I also set up the hosts file to point to the right ip address for =
the exchange server.

Thanks for any help

Vince
