I've an Exchange Server 2003 SP2 running on a Windows Server 2003 SP2 that is also a DC.
I want to implement RPC over HTTPS in order to use Outlook from outside, but now I'm testing from inside LAN.
What I've done on the server:
Add this registry key (as said in http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http-server.asp):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NTDS\Parameters]
"NSPI Interface protocol sequences"=hex(7):6e,00,63,00,61,00,63,00,6e,00,5f,00,\
  68,00,74,00,74,00,70,00,3a,00,36,00,30,00,30,00,34,00,00,00,00,00

and


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\RpcProxy]
"ValidPorts"="server:100-5000;
server:6001-6002;
server:6004;
server.domain.local:6001-6002;
server.domain.local:6004;
mail.external.com:6001-6002;
mail.external.com:6004;"

(changing names as our network names)

Internet information Server:
I've added a new cerificate (created locally) named "server" (like the name of the DC) and assigned to the IIS default web site.

When I open from LAN https://server I get a Certificate error, but I've added this certificate to the trusted root CAs cetificate in Internet Explorer, and now I don't receive this message.

When I start outlook with "outlook /rpcdiag" I always get TCP/IP as connection type and not HTTPS.

What I'm doing wrong? The problem is the Certificate?
Any help will be appreciated. Always award A!
