I have searched a lot and tried many things before coming here and putting this question.

Scenario is,

1. I have Exchange 2003 Server with SP2 running on Cluster ( On Win 2003 ) , which is also hosting Outlook Web Access. Users are connecting it with out any issues.
2. My DC is separate , which is also a GC  ... I have another DC as backup which is also another GC ..

All these are on same LAN .. No Firewalls.

3. Now I introduced a new Exchange 2003 , will be my Front-End Server and also I need to configure RPC over HTTP and later HTTPS

What I have done,

1. I changed the setting of my existing Exchange Server Cluster ( both Servers ) through GUI , Exchange System Manager, RPC-HTTP tab, to act as a BACK-END Server.
2. I went back to Front-End Server, installed the required Windows Component for RPC ...
3. I was following SEMBEEs doc.. I changed the settings of Front-End server as FRONT-END using GUI ( Same Exchange System Manager RPC-HTTP tab )

But when I browse the RPC site, it keeps asking me username and password..

However, I am getting OWA through Front-End Server ...

Where should I check and what should I do in this scenario?

I have verified the Registry settings in FRONT END Server which Sembee explained ,  it s fine.
But, should I do any registry changes in BACK-END as well ? .. I mean, on both Cluster Servers? .

I have done the Chagne in DC-GC Server correctly.

What I should do inorder to get it work ...

Thanks in advance..

Heres the REG setting I put in FRONT END

Under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Rpc\RpcProxy]

"ValidPorts"="ex-front.sultan.com:100-5000;exchange.sultan.com:6001-6002;exchange.sultan.com.sultan.com:6001-6002;dom0307.sultan.com:6001-6002;dom0307.sultan.com.sultan.com:6001-6002;exchange.sultan.com:6004;exchange.sultan.com.sultan.com:6004;dom0307.sultan.com:6004;dom0307.sultan.com.sultan.com:6004;mail.EXXTTERRNAL.com:6001-6002;mail.EXXXTERNAL.com:6004;dom0307.sultan.com:593;dom0307.sultan.com.sultan.com:593;exchange.sultan.com:593;exchange.sultan.com.sultan.com:593;mail.EXXXTERNAL.com:593;"

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Finally

I figured it out myself .. It wasnt tough as I thought ...  
All I needed was a 30 days TRIAL Certificate from RAPIDSSL

Heres some links that helped me ...

First you need to create a CSR , Just follow the below link to select your webserver type and HOWTO Get CSR

http://www.rapidssl.com/freessl/freessl-csr.html 

Once you got the CSR , follow the RAPIDSSL , they will even phone you to confirm, then they will send you a link to approve the certificate and once you approved , they will email you the CERTIFICATE ..

Then you can install your certificate using  the following link ( if it is IIS )

http://www.rapidssl.com/resources/install/rapidssl/MS_IIS5.htm

Kindly refund my points.
