RPC over HTTP access issue

I am having issues setting up RPC over HTTP (will be https once i get it working). Its on a single server and i believe i have carried out all the tasks however when i try and access http:\\myserver\rpc within my Lan i get access denied after three attempts.

I think its might be related to Global Catalogue,= as i never really understood how to configure that bit. I don't think exchange server can be GC but since there is already one on the subnet, i did not think it would be an issue. Quite how you would use exchange with out a GC is another question which i don;t want to know about.

OWA works fine.

so if someone could help me that would be great.

    Accepted Solution

    First off, an Exchange server CAN also have the Global Catalog role. That however is unrelated to RPC over HTTPS.

    Secondly, why are you trying to access http://myserver/rpc? RPC over HTTPS has nothing to do with Internet Explorer or accessing a website. It is a way for Outlook to connect to an Exchange server when it is outside of the network.

    Read through this article and follow all the steps listed. If you are still having trouble let us know.

    Also, you have to use HTTPS with RPC over HTTPS, it is hard coded into the rpcproxy.dll file to only accept SSL connections, no matter what the directory security settings are.
