Cannot connect to SMTP server to test HTTP over RPC
Posted on 2007-03-26
I have a HTTP OVER RPC setup here in the office so that remote offices can check mail using their Outlook client instead ofusing OWA. Everything has been working fine. This morning I have a remote client I am trying to setup like I have the several dozen others but Outlook keeps complaining that the Exchange server cannot be contacted or is off-line.
I am remotely connected to this user's PC and I tried connecting to the smtp server via telnet firstname.lastname@example.org 25 and I keep getting the error that it could not open a coneection to the host. I tried using the IP address and get the same result. I can ping the server with no problems.
As I have said, Exchange and HTTP over RPC has been running fine for all our remote clients. This is the first one I am having a problem with.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
