Outlook Anywhere not connecting

I have just hired a server from Fasthosts.com and have installed:
Server 2008 R2
Exchange 2010
SQL SVR Enterprise
SharePoint  2010
It is all running great but now I want to be able to connect my Outlook to it using Outlook anywhere, I have installed an SSL on the server and configured it in exchange management console, but when I try to connect outlook it gives me a logon prompt but will not authenticate.
As the server is remote, I have not joined the computers to the domain as Fast hosts will not let me terminate a VPN on their router so I cannot think of a way round the VPN route.
I believe that the computer has to be connected to Exchange as if it were on the domain for the first time, then Outlook  Anywhere can be used after that but it’s getting the initial connection that I cannot get , does anyone have any subjections I can try ,… many thanks in advance

Please try to configure Outlook Anywhere as following:-
First of all lets go ahead and install RPC over HTTPs proxy connectivity from Server manager.
Then Enable Outlook anywhere from Exchange management console.
In IIS manager please check the authentication settings in RPC Virtual directory, it should be basic with SSL enabled.
First try url https://mail.domain.com/rpc/rpcproxy.dll you should get the blank page.
if you are getting blank page, please try connectivity check as sunnyc7 suggested to do, and then please let us know the status, so that we can provide you more on the issue.
