Problems with RPC over HTTPS

Hi,

I'm trying to configure RPC over HTTPS. Have followed this instruction. http://www.petri.co.il/configure_rpc_over_https_on_a_single_server.htm
I have checked everything twice and it should be OK.  I have used an exe file, rpcnofrontend.exe, to configure the registry.
When I try connect from the outside using Outlook 2007 there is no response. If I connect from inside, outlook does not use the RPC over HTTPS even if it's configured to do so.
Webmail is working with ssl. If I try to connect to the /rpc directory using a web browser it seems to work. (i recieve the certificate, but have no access)
Any thing I have been missing? Should I import a certificate in Outlook or should I be prompted?

Do you mean you get an SSL certificate prompt when you access the /rpc directory? If you do then that is the first problem. Outlook cannot cope with the SSL certificate prompt. Your best option is to use a commercial SSL certificate rather than a home grown one. It will make deployment easier and I have more success with a commercial certificate than a home grown one.
You can get a 30 day trial certificate from RapidSSL.com - their purchased certificates are on US$60/year or you can get them from GoDaddy for US$20/year (http://www.certificatesforexchange.com/)

As for registry settings required, Daniel Petri and I disagree on what is required. My version is here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/rpc-http.asp

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. Seems like it worked when I took a manual import of the CA certificat on the client machine. Hopefully I will find a solution that will prevent me from doing this import on every client. Thanks for your information about certificates. Guess this is a better solution after all.
