RPC HTTPs - Outlook 2003/Windows 7/Exchange 2003


I'm using Outlook 2003 on Windows 7, trying to connect to the Exchange 2003 F/E server via RPC HTTPs from the Internet.
I have already installed this patch on Exchange 2003 STD F/E server - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=FFAEC8B2-99E0-427A-8110-2F745059A02D&displaylang=en

When I try to connect Outlook 2003 to Exchange 2003 STD F/E server via RPC HTTPs from the internet, I could see that it is always trying to connect to the domain controller host name instead (using outlook /rpcdiag) of the Exchange 2003 STD F/E server external host name.

Make sure you have relevant boxes ticked on the RPC via HTTP screen.

You need to make sure you have either "Use on Slow connections" or "on Fast connections" ticked.

crazyenglishman: I have all ticked and filled with relavent information. I am able to use RPC/HTTPs from an XP machine, but not from this Windows 7 machine. I understand Winfows 2003/Exchange 2003 xenroll certificate enrollment web service does not support W7/Vista clients...
can you connect to OWA without certificate errors? If you can connect to OWA with NO certificate errors then RPC/HTTPs shoud work for you.

Does it even password prompt? Try changing the authentication to Basic (which will be encrypted by the SSL certificate so don't worry)
