Step by step instructions for RPC over HTTP with Exchange Server 2003

I need this info quickly so I'm going to offer MAX points to whoever can satisfy this request:

I need step by step instructions for our particular configuration for setting up RPC over HTTP so that Outlook 2003 clients can access the Exchange 2003 server. I need these instructions  for both the Exchange server and the client. Also need to know exactly what ports need opening on the firewall (I believe they are 443, 6001, 6002, and 6004) and what registry mods are needed on the server and the client. Also what do I need to modify in IIS?

My network is like this:

Exchange server runs on Windows 2003 Server Standard behind firewall at offsite hosted facility. It is the DC for the domain. There are no other servers.
Clients connect with Outlook 2003 over the internet with a variety of connection types, i.e. T1, DSL, Cable....

POP, IMAP, and OWA do not work for us for these reasons:
1. Must have GAL access without query
2. Must have the ability to use HTML stationery

Again, please respond with STEP by STEP instructions...
Thank you,
Mark

InteraX,

Sorry, thought the link would include the sub clicks. Select deployment scenarios and then choose the right scenario for you.

Good luck.

Simon,
Great instructions. I am having one problem. I've gone through the server mods (single box) and restarted the server. I created a new Exchange profile using the instructions but am getting "Exchange server unavailable". I am able to access OWA, just not via RPC. Ideas?
Mark
Simon,
Oops, I think I know what it is. Do you have instructions for getting the free Certificate and installing it?
Mark
I found the instructions on your site Simon. Do I request the trial through the Default Web Site or via the virtual site and if virtual is it Exchange, RPC or RPCwithCert?
Mark
Simon,
I installed the certificate (at Default Web Site) and I appear to be almost there. When I start Outlook with the RPC over HTTP profile I'm asked for userid and password. I enter domain\username and the password but it infinitely keeps coming back asking again. What am I missing?
Thanks,
Mark
outlook /rpcdiag comes up empty.......
