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

"NSPI Interface protocol sequences"=hex(7):6e,00,63,00,61,00,63,00,6e,00,5f,00,\



(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!
