Outlook is trying to use a VPN instead of the LAN to connect to Exchange
Posted on 2008-10-27
Our brokerage users have a VPN connection to an outside brokerage firm in addition to their LAN connection.
Thier Outlook is set up to check e-mail from the local Exchange Server, and a POP3 account with the outside brokerage firm.
Recently a user using MS Vista and MS Outlook 2007 has experienced an issue where, when the VPN is on, Outlook will not connect to our Exchange server. When the VPN is off, Exchange works once again.
The VPN needs to stay on and co-exist with applications that rely on a local connection, too.
How can I force Outlook to use the LAN and not the VPN?
