It does, but if you are on the local network it will connect directly to the server.

sorry lost me there, if you are using Outlook Anywhere it does not require a VPN connection, the point is it connects directly to your exchange server through the web over a secure SSL connection.  If you are alos connecting to the network with a VPN it may use the VPN to connect.  You can configure it not to use slow connections though.

outlook anywhere in its default configuration uses rpc when connected to a fast network (LAN)
when remote or on a slow network it will connect via https

with exchange 2007 and 2010 you can determine the url by using
get-outlookanywhere

my remote branches want to get connected to the head office via our Data ip VPN connection to head office . due this branch network users not part of my main exchnage dns(AD) not resolving the exchnage server name via outlook mapi connection . that is why i am trying used the outlook anyware ?

branch users can access my exchange server by entering private ip address/owa (192.168.20.10\owa)

but i want to setup their mail client . but then only i came know that it is looking for external address we mentioned in the exchnage

Whatever is dealing with the DNS on the remote sites, add a DNS record for the mail.company.com address.

yes, either configure the branch dns servers with a record for mail.company.com with the ip 192.168.20.10
or edit their host files with an entry 192.168.20.10 mail.company.com

I have done the second option which is host entry to 192.168.20.10 . i tried connecting via outlook . it says echange server should be online to do that . but the same time i can access the same exchnage server by enterin the ipaddress/owa

recenly we change our head office ip address not allow to go out side in the router except few ip address like ISA server ,dns ,dhcp . previously any one can go to the internet by puting the router DG .
do i have to add my exchnage server ip into that allow list . i can ping to that ip from all the branches . this is only for internet ? isn't it

issue seems to be name resolving thing . i will try today dns zone thing and see
