RPC over HTTPS question
Posted on 2011-03-08
I enabled Outlook Anywhere on an Exchange 2007 server.
OWA works fine, but I have a slight problem with RPC over HTTPS.
On the workstation side, when I set the mail account up on the LAN, I entered in the server field, remote.company.com (which is my FDQN for the SSL cert) and then the username.
As soon as Outlook authenticates the new account user, it changes the server name back to the local server name ... SERVERNAME.LOCAL
I think this could be the reason why I am having difficulty to make RPC work from the internet.
However, when I create a host entry on the workstation (as a test), and refer the LOCAL SERVER NAME, back to the public IP address, RPC works ... ?
1. What is suppose to be in the server name field for the account in Outlook to enable users to access RPC over HTTPS for the Exchange server from the internet?
2. If Outlook automatically changes the remote.company.com back to the local server name (SERVERNAME.LOCAL), will this cause a problem with RPC coming in from the internet?
