Syncing Outlook with Exchange 2003 without first creating a VPN

Posted on 2009-04-30

Everytime we want to sync a pc that synchronize Outlook with our Exchange server, we first need to create a VPN (for Outlook to be able to create the connection with exchange).
Then we use the setting of "connect to exchange using HTTP")
Is there any way to do it without creating a VPN first?

    RPC/HTTPs usually works just fine without any need for a VPN connection, I set machine sup like this regularly.  What happens when you just try plugging in the settings & syncing?

    I would like to be able to create the link between Outlook and Exchange without the computer being on the same physical local network than the exchange server.
    Like it is done for mobile devices. Is this possible.
    It's to configure remote workers without the need to create a VPN (for the Outlook and exchange to see each other) for installation.
