Hey guys,

New Exchange 2010 install. I enabled Outlook Anywhere via Exchange 2010 EMC. Here are the results from the exchange connectivity tester:

Testing RPC/HTTP connectivity.
       The RPC/HTTP test failed.
       
      Test Steps
       
      Attempting to resolve the host name mail.nicolosifoods.com in DNS.
       The host name resolved successfully.
       
      Additional Details
      Testing TCP port 443 on host mail.nicolosifoods.com to ensure it's listening and open.
       The port was opened successfully.
      Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
       The certificate passed all validation requirements.
       
      Test Steps
      Checking the IIS configuration for client certificate authentication.
       Client certificate authentication wasn't detected.
       
      Additional Details
      Testing HTTP Authentication Methods for URL https://mail.nicolosifoods.com/rpc/rpcproxy.dll.
       The HTTP authentication test failed.
       
      Additional Details
       A Web exception occurred because an HTTP 404 - NotFound response was received from Unknown.



Any ideas?

I am a newbie and didn't have RPC/HTTP installed as a feature. It is installed now. But now I get this error:

Attempting to ping RPC endpoint 6001 (Exchange Information Store) on server nicolosisvr.nicolosifoods.local.
       The attempt to ping the endpoint failed.


Isn't that supposed to be opened when you enabled Outlook Anywhere?

Followed them perfectly. Only difference is I'm using basic authentication instead of NTLM.

443 is open on the firewall. I shouldn't have to do anything with port 6001 it should be done automagically, no?

Those steps looks significantly more difficult than they have to be.. not to mention it's for Exchange 2007, not 2010.

I am not sure I understand what the guy in the 2nd link is referring to as far as adding IPv4 information to the hosts file. I already have IPv6 disabled in the network connection.

I've set this up on other Exchange 2010 servers. All I had to do was install RPC/HTTP and enable Outlook Anywhere.

Oh, also, I can successfully telnet to port 6001, so the time out in my mind makes 0 sense..

Error indicated to Authencation issue. Check the IIS part more. Try with NTLM and see the result
