Can't connect Outlook 07 to Exchange over VPN
Posted on 2009-05-07
hopefully someone can point out what I've missed with this. I had Outlook 07 connecting perfectly fine on my bosses home pc. There's a VPN link between the house and the office. I've added an entry to the host file on the client machine and it resolves correctly via name and IP. It has been running fine for months until today. Can still ping the exchange server by name and IP, can open up network shares on the exchange server (small biz 2003), yet outlook won't open. I don't get the option to work in offline mode and I can't create a new profile as it won't resolve to the exchange server and I'm a bit stumped on this. Is there something minor I'm missing?
Oh, also I've checked to make sure nothing else is using the same port as outlook. Everything else is working fine on the pc with regads to connection to the company network.
