I hope someone will be able to help with a problem that's making me extract my hair in great chunks! I'm relatively technical, so please do not hold back with offers of a solution - but my experience with IIS and MS Exchange is little. (Please read on to see how these are relevant with the RWW problems..)
Short story - I have recently built a new server (due to go into production tomorrow - hurrah..) with Windows SBS 2008. I have the Remote Web Workplace running, and users can login, check their e-mails, etc.. However, I am having problems with them using the remote-connect menu to remote machines on the network. Upon selecting a computer from the list, an authentication box appears, and I cannot authenticate to the machine. It just returns with authentication failure errors. (I've tried domain\user and all that..)
The machines *can* be accessed on the local network via RDP. No problems whatsoever. It seems to me like there is something missing between IIS > The TS Service > The machine. I have been researching this like crazy, and it would seem that some component of Exchange 2007 can change the RPC authentication options in IIS, and this argues with the way the details get passed back to be authenticated (slap me if this makes no sense).
If this is related or not - Outlook constantly pops up asking for authentication - even *if* you are logged into a machine with a domain account. From some of the links I’ve read, I have a feeling this could be related - but I'm not entirely sure how.
I *think* this is close to my problem, and some have suggested it as a fix - however, I do not seem to be able to download anything other than a Vista x64 hotfix - which will not apply to the SBS system..
- Hotfix I tried (doesn’t apply)
- This person has the same problems I have, but his fixes do not work
I fear at this stage I am in over my head, and can mess around with IIS authentication settings until the cows come home, but I fear I will just make it worse.
Hope someone can help, and if you need any more information, please let me know
