Http over Rpc connection issue SBS2003 .LOCAL Domain
Posted on 2010-11-28
I have a client that has a SBS2003 Server. The previous IT support person initially setup the server with the Domain.Local naming convention. So when connecting to Exchange the server name is domain.Local. I setup a self signed certificate for outside access using Domain.com. The problem I'm having is I have a user who is on the road a lot and they would rather use Outlook than OWA. So when I tried to setup Outlook using Http over RPC it only works on the inside network. When tested on the outside network I constantly get the logon screen for Outlook and a message saying the server could not be contacted. I'm pretty sure this has something to do with the Internal domain being .Local and the external being .COM. How do I resolve this issue? I do not want to start over from square one. This server has been a nightmare to get working properly since I inherited it. This would be the finally kink worked out of this server.
