Hi,

I am having trouble connecting our remote users using Outlook 2003 to our SBS 2003 via HTTP/S over RPC, when i try setting up outlook comes back saying The connection to the Microsoft Exchange Server is Unavailable, i have setup a self assigned cert, opened ports 443 and 80, i am now lost.

Hope someone can shed some light on it.

Thanks

Jemal

If you a using a self-signed certificate, you will need to export the certificate from the server and import it via Internet Explorer otherwise RPC over HTTPS simply won't work.

If you purchase a 3rd party SSL certificate, you won't need to install the certificate on the client.
