Hi

I have enable RPC over HTTP on our exhange server. I then went to client pc and tried to configure outlook anywhere on Outlook 2007. when i goto to enter the proxy server settings it says invalid address try again the format of the site is mail.mydomain.co\exchange this is what i use to connect to owa and apparently it should be the same for rpc over http access, but i dont think it likes the /exchange part.

any ideas?

Not sure what instructions you are reading.
You can only enter host.domain.com for the server addresses. No http, https, / anything. Just host.domain.com - Outlook and Exchange will do the rest.

There can be lots of reasons for the feature not working.

With Exchange 2007 it comes down to two in most cases.

1. Authentication mismatch. You have it set to basic on EMC and you are using NTLM in Outlook.
2. SSL certificate issues. If the SSL certificate is not trusted then it will fail. On the workstation browse to https://host.domain.com/rpc - if you get an SSL certificate prompt then the feature will fail.

thanks simon, we dont use ssl it seems and if i set the rpc to basic on the server the set ip to basic on the client it automatically adds a https to proxy server settings and im guessing because we dont access owa via https:\\mail.mydomain.com it wont work via rpc http either we access owa via http:\\mail.mydomain.com

cheers

I have seen your other question that you have just posted.
You use the phrase "Outlook Anywhere". That is the name of this feature on Exchange 2007, not on Exchange 2003. On Exchange 2003 it is more complex to setup.

The use of SSL is not optional, it is required. Therefore if you are trying to set it up without SSL then that is the cause of your problems.
