Wireless Domain User Problems

I have a couple of issues when setting up users who want to be wireless within the office. After I join the laptops to the domain wirelessly there are couple of issues that pop up:

1. Cannot access Company web
2. Outlook gives constant warning pop ups about the site security certificate not having the correct name (remote.domain.com) even though it is there and in some cases says it cannot connect to the proxy server (Outlook Anywhere is enabled)

These issues do not pop up when I connect them directly to the network via cable.
So what simple thing am I missing here?

Is your wirless network using the same network subnet as the wired LAN? Is the SBS server also giving out IP addresses for wireless ?

Yes to #1
The person who originally setup the server kept DHCP running on the router and to be honest I am surprised it has worked that way for so long without many problems.

I am guessing you're using RPC, in which case this is likely your issue:


I found that just doing the following worked:

Set-WebServicesVirtualDirectory -Identity "EWS*" -ExternalUrl "Https://webmail.pdtit.be/EWS/Exchange.asmx" -InternalUrl "Https:// webmail.pdtit.be/EWS/Exchange.asmx"
Some of the MS command lines didn't work for me so I just did this one.
