I have a single-server environment running Small Business Server 2003 Enterprise.
I'm trying to enable RPC-over-HTTPS for Outlook over the Internet.
I enabled the RPC proxy through the Server Management snap-in and then went through this (http://www.petri.co.il/configure_rpc_over_https_on_a_single_server.htm
) guide to get everything properly configured.
I have a valid third-party SSL certificate with the correct FQDN, I am passing ports 80 and 443 through the (external) firewall, Outlook Web Access works just fine.
The problem that I am having is that when I try to connect with the Outlook client, I can't get past authentication. I get a regular IE-style popup saying "Connecting to <servername.internaldomain
.local>" and asking for the username and password. I've tried every variation (username and pass, domain\username and pass, email@example.com and pass) with no luck. It just continues to ask for authentication.
When I run Outlook with the /rpcdiag switch, the only entry in the popup window is "Server name: servername; Type: Directory; Status: Connecting" with nothing else.
I can't get anywhere past this point.
I've tried it over the LAN and WAN with the same results, so I don't believe this is a firewall issue.
