I am having problems working out how to get RPC over HTTP working. This is my set up....
Single Server Enviroment
1 SBS with a static address. The server is running AD, DC and exchange, all client machines get there IP Address from another DHCP server.
I have installed the RPC over HTTP networking components in windows add/remove components
I have obtained and published certificates
I have then gone into the IIS, RPC folders properties, Directory Security, Authentication and access control, cleared enable anonymous access and selected basic authentication (password is sent in clear text). Then under Secure Communications, i have checked requires SSL & 128 bit encryption.
I am using a windows XP home client to connect to the server, which has the RPC hotfix installed. When i go to (for exmaple) https://mail.contoso.com/rpc
i get the, you are about to view pages over a secure connection. I type in my user name and password and i get the following error:
http error 403.2 - Forbidden: Read access is denied.
Which is apparently the expected behavior.
When i try and connect from a client machine using the outlook /rpcdiag command it prompts me for my password and in the exchange server connetcion status window are four entries. One for Directory, Referral, Mail and Public folders. ALL just have three dashes --- in the conn column. And they all keep disconnection and connecting. outlook runs slow. It has not collected any of the emails from the server and when i press send and recieve i get the error 0x80040115
Any ideas anyone?
